This is just fantastic. Such a bold engineering solution. There will probably be a lot of problems to overcome. I think that the most dangerous is an earthquake. This is a very strong natural phenomenon

Here in Singapore driverless train was introduced a long back so India is behind in the race but still happy to know that they are in the race now. Recently Delhi metro also started trial for driverless metro in one of the line. Hope India will be able to maintain themselves in this race. Thanks for the post sir @sbanerjee0017
