What we need is better rails with less than 5 degree turn anywhere so that we may not have to slow the train too often. The other important thing is non coaxial or independent wheel unlike our present coaches made on co axial wheel. Third is reduction in weight which would allow train to travel at high speed without slow down. These are the reasons why Tejas train has higher average speed inspite of rajdhanis have better top speed.

2022 onwards MCF Raibareli will start manufacturing aluminium coaches capable of attaining speed upto 250kmph. South Korea will transfer the technology. Train 18 coaches are modified LHB coaches. Maybe we can see Train-20 after 2022 with these new coaches.
Was wondering what type of tech do Koreans have, could you share ot? coz afaik their high speed rail is based on French TGV..

Great news. We can improve overall utilizing of existing infrastructure by improving tracks, automation, higher power engines with better aerodynamic, low weight coaches, independent wheel on coaches , low weight aluminum coaches etc. Tracks are ver important. We should modify all tracks to handle atleast semi high speed trains in excess of 180 mph.

While recently going through YouTube videos of (Israel Aerospace Industries) IAI,I came across a product by ELTA Systems.This type of system should be used on our train's to avoid accidents and improve safety.just recently we had horrific incident involving our poor hard working migrant workers who are solid backbone of our country during China unleashed Wuhan virus pandemic.each year scores of people and animals (even endangered wildlife) are killed on railway tracks.this type of system not necessarily have to be imported but could be made in India
