CISF (Central Industrial Security Force) is helping the National High-Speed Rail Corporation(NHSRCL) to finalise the security measures for India’s first bullet train, according to a report. The NHSRCL is implementing the high-speed train project running between Mumbai & Ahmedabad.

- They are planning to allow passengers to enter the platform just before the scheduled departure of the train.
- “We provide security consultancy to many establishments and since this will be the first bullet train project for India, NHSRCL has approached us for consultancy. We will review the security structure of (high-speed trains in) other countries and will suggest a measure accordingly,” a CISF official was quoted in the report saying.
- Since all the bullet train stations will be interconnected with railway stations, RPF might be given the responsibility of security for bullet train passengers as well, NHSRCL spokesperson Sushma Gaur said.
