The preliminary study intends to analyze the applicability and benefits of the hyperloop technology that identifies high priority routes in these states and also inform the state governments on the viability of the project.


Priyank Karghe, ITBT and tourism, Karnataka said that Bengaluru has long been the IT nucleus of the country and all the important tech giants have been operating out of the region.
