Cities and Regions


Mumbai is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the biggest, wealthiest and most populous city of India with a total population of more than 20.7 million people living in this mega city of India. This city is also called the powerhouse and commercial capital of Indian economy. This mega economic powerhouse, Mumbai not only contributes the highest GDP of $300 billion but is also responsible for 25% of industrial output, 70% of maritime trade in India and 70% of capital transactions to the nation's economy. It is known as the industrial hub of India. A big proportion of import-exports in the country happen through ports and airways in Mumbai. Most of the foreign tourists and citizens enters the country through this city. Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust of Mumbai is the busiest port in India. One of the terminal of proposed corridor is planned to be in this port or somewhere near this port.


Delhi houses the national capital of India. With a population of over 22 million people, it is the largest commercial city in northern India. It has a total GDP of $170 billion. After Mumbai, most foreign citizens enter the country through this Megacity. The city experiences a huge amount of Air freight import export through its airport, next to none other than Mumbai. Being the National capital of the country, it is obvious that Delhi is the most significant and powerful political center in India. But after all this, importance of Delhi in the country multiplies due to its huge economy. The city helps to pump the economy of Northern India. Its political and economic power has resulted in creation of strong suburbs and neighbors like Gurgaon and Noida which themselves have a significant economy.


Jaipur is the capital and largest city of Rajasthan. The city has a population of 3.1 million people making it the tenth most populous city of India. Jaipur has a GDP of $24 billion making it the biggest economy of Rajasthan. Other than this, the city of Jaipur and the state of Rajasthan is one of the largest tourist attractions in India. Being the state capital and home to several architectural and historical wonders, Jaipur is the most significant city in the region in all political, cultural and financial perspective.


Indore is the largest and most populous city of central India. It has also been named as the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh. Having a population of more than 3.2 million and a GDP of over $16 billion, it serves as the financial and educational hub for Central India. Indore is neighboured by Ujjain (also composed in the proposed route), which has its own cultural importance in the country. Being the biggest commercial city in central India most of the goods in the central India enters and get distributed from this city. Indore is one of the thirteen cities which is set to be developed as smart cities in Phase-1 of Smart City mission, it is presently among the first cities being developed as Smart Cities.

  • Junction: Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC)

    DMHC will have a huge impact in the region on integration with already proposed Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC). The main reason behind this is the similarity in the basic vision for the region. The vision is to develop and boost economies in the region and at the same time increasing social and financial life standard of the people around it and to empower them. Delhi-Mumbai Hyperloop Corridor with DMHC and DMPRL
  • We aim to integrate DGWHyperloop well with the already proposed DMIC (Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor) to accelerate the trade, business and the progress of the regions in contact.
  • An integration of these projects will maximize the opportunities for both cargo and passengers transport between origin and destination pairs. Mumbai - Delhi is the most travelled route in India (airway). We propose to connect the largest urban cities of the nation as well as two of the fastest growing tier-2 cities like Indore and Jaipur to the above mentioned economic hotspots.
  • DMHC will trigger new opportunities for socio-economic impact/benefits throughout our proposed corridor.
  • A total of 37 special investment nodes are to be created between the route that would support manufacturing, however, any type of industry could be set up. The main role of these hubs is to facilitate businesses, set up their factories quickly without any hiccups in land acquisition and resources, and providing cheap, fast, and efficient transportation to ports and the rest of the nation.
  • the project is expected to double employment potential, triple industrial output and quadruple exports from the region in five years. The project is expected to generate 3 million jobs, largely in manufacturing. The labor availability is approximately 50 million in the immediate influence zone and over 250 million across the states where the project will pass through. There are several high quality and renowned educational institutions across the states such as IIT and IIM. Many more institutes such as Indian Institute of Information Technology are planned along the corridor.

  • Impact

    DMHC will have substancial social, cultural, environmental and economic impact on regions along the corridor. The corridor passes through five of India's essential states which have their own socio and economic importance in the country. Hyperloop, being a superfast medium of transportation will revolutionize India's domestic traveling and the logistics industries.
    DGWHyperloop's Hyperloop system alongside the DMHC will generate 35% more electricity than it requires while fulfilling the basic need of high speed transportation of thousands of individuals. The electricity could be sold to states in the region.
    Central part of any country plays important role in its logistics industry, and Indore is a major financial hub of central India. A big proportion of the imported goods in Central India get distributed through this city. By connecting Indore to the corridor, cargo transportation in the central region of the country will become easier than ever before. Jaipur is the biggest city of the biggest state in India (area wise). The corridor will make a huge impact on this city and the state of Rajasthan in various ways. In terms of logistics, the city and the state will get influenced in a same manner as Indore. Gurgaon, being one of the biggest industrial hub of the country. This puts the city in a dire need of a good transportation system and Hyperloop will surely make it up to the requirements of this city. By covering Gurgaon this corridor will make a huge impact on transportation of domestic good in the country. Via Delhi and Mumbai, huge proportion of goods in the country enters through these two centers. Hyperloop will make cargo transportation very easy in the regions it passes through. Other than this, the project is beneficial because it can transport cargo at cheaper prices than airways, with being comparatively faster.
    Hyperloop as an energy efficient and the least polluting technology will provide a greener option to the people and companies for travelling and transporting goods in the regions. As Hyperloop is powered by solar energy, the corridor will help reduce pollution in the region by providing a better alternative transporting medium in the region. India is one of the biggest carbon emitting countries in the world and as the country is still developing and most of the industries are growing rapidly, to reduce pollution and carbon emission and to improve environment, this type of projects are really worth and profitable for India and especially for western region of the India as it is the most developed part of the country.
    As we all know Hyperloop is very efficient when it comes to energy consumption. The technology runs on solar power. The corridor is proposed in a sub-tropical country like India where there is more than enough sunlight to power the whole system. After all the energy required by the system we will have a lot of power left over. For most of the time the corridor is surrounded by Agricultural land. The truth is that in many regions even today there is not enough power supply to completely support agricultural. Many of those areas fall around the proposed corridors. India is a country where a major part of the population is based on agriculture for living. Most of this population comprises of farmers and mainly small scale farmers. So, we propose that the leftover energy can be supplied to these farmers at very low rates. If we can successfully implement this project, it could turn out to be life changing for thousands of farmers and their families. And not just farmers we can also provide energy to some backward villages where there is no proper or electricity at all. Providing the leftover electricity at a very cheap price will prove to be backbone for those villages and all the small businesses that can yield in that environment.
    DGWHyperloop's Hyperloop system alongside the DMHC will generate 35% more electricity than it requires while fulfilling the basic need of high speed transportation of thousands of individuals. The electricity could be sold to states in the region.
    The project will have a huge impact on the tourism industry in the country. There are a lot of reasons to back this statement. First of all, the project connects the two biggest cities in the country. These two cities are the prime spot from where the foreign visitors enter India. We are connecting these two cities and that too by passing from the states like Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Maharashtra attracts highest number of foreign tourist annually than any other state in India. If we talk about Rajasthan, tourism is a major industry of Rajasthan and this is one of the main reason why we have Jaipur as a stop on our corridor. Madhya Pradesh is also among top tourist attracting state in the country. All these three states, we are talking about right now are very diverse having various tourist spots, having several places cited as UNESCO World Heritage Site. The list of these sites includes Ajanta, Elephant and Ellora caves, Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Khajuraho, Sanchi, and Bhimbetka and the list goes on. Mumbai and Delhi alone are big tourist spots in the country. Better, faster and cheaper connectivity between these places will attract a lot of tourists to visit these states. There are millions of people dependent on tourism industry in these regions. This corridor will surely affect all those lives in a positive way both directly and indirectly. The corridor also passes through places like Nasik and Ujjain. These places have their own cultural importance in the country. Both the cities host fairs once in every twelve year. The Simhasta fair happened in 2016 attracted 50 million people from all over the world making it second largest fair in the world right after Kumbhmela held in Allahabad, India. Adding up to this cities Delhi, Mumbai, Gurugram and Indore are best when it comes to healthcare in India. India also attracts medical patients from Asia, Middle-East and Africa due to efficient and cheap treatment options as compared to Western countries of Europe and America. Faster and cheaper mode of transportation will help flourish Health tourism in the region and will drive healthcare sector in the region toward further development.
    If things started to happen, the corridor itself will require skilled workers, technicians, scientists, engineers, market and financial professionals as well as laborers to get built. Even after complete construction we will need skilled professionals for maintenance and working of the project. In this way the project and corridor it will become a huge source of employment in the regions.
    The corridor will help create new industries and cities throughout the regions connected to it. The corridor will help create new logistic hubs, tourist spots, Manufacturing Industries, mills and factories in the region. All these industries, small scale or large scale will need both skilled and unskilled labor force who will get employed in all three sectors. The corridor has full potential to accelerate the economic growth of surrounding regions. If we look at the bigger picture, one of these industries might expand and result in creating new hubs and even cities. All these industries and cities will help increase the living standard of the citizens, organize the unorganized sectors and eventually flourish the economy.
    In conclusion, the corridor will affect millions of people and Industries as well as sectors in the country in a positive manner and help them flourish well. The project will increase life standard of millions of people from eradicating poverty from many poverty stricken villages to providing jobs to educated and skilled citizens. From agriculture, logistics to tourism; from industrial to environmental; from economical to social this corridor will surely have a huge and long lasting impact on the economy, society and culture of India.

    Why Delhi-Mumbai?

    A question which may appear is why the corridor has been proposed between Delhi and Mumbai? We believe that an extensive project like building the Hyperloop in India, should be done in various phases, which further classify into different stages. Considering the need for a direct and dedicated transport link between Delhi and Mumbai, DGWHyperloop recognises Delhi-Mumbai as the top contender in India.

    DGWHyperloop - Hyperloop India Corridor

    Other routes considered for Hyperloop include-
  • Mumbai-Bangalore-Chennai Corridor
  • Hyderabad-Bangalore-Kochi Corridor
  • Amritsar-Kolkata Corridor
  • Kolkata-Chennai Corridor

  • India's Need for Hyperloop

    India is urbanising rapidly with 40.76% of Indians, expected to be living in urban areas by 2030 from 31.16% in 2011. This ongoing process of urbanization would create huge stress in the existing cities which are already unable to support the rapid growth with poor infrastructure.

    In some cases, existing urban centers may face environmental or physical constrictions (such as Mumbai and Delhi) of expansion. In present scenario, this would prove to be an impediment to India's continuing economic growth. The development of Hyperloop on DMHC's behalf will eventually solve this problem as this project would be the main reason for the development of numerous new cities to create new centers of economic activity in the country. These new globally benchmarked cities aim will be superior to the existing cities in terms of infrastructure, planning, city management, and services. Emerging new global cities would also rapidly increase the Indian economy. Development of Hyperloop in India will result in
  • More employment opportunites
  • Advanced Infrastructure
  • Development of new cities
  • Minimal pollution- Push to green energy
  • Gateway to new business opportunities
