PTI reported that the Godrej Group has moved the Bombay High Court challenging the proposed acquisition of its prime property in suburban Vikhroli for the government's ambitious bullet train project between Ahmedabad and the metropolis. The conglomerate has sought a direction to authorities concerned to change the project's alignment so that it can get nearly 8.6 acres of land belonging to its infrastructure arm Godrej Construction out of the plan.

Of the total 508.17 km of rail track between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, about 21 km is planned to be underground, as per the current alignment of the bullet train project.

One of the entry points to the underground tunnel falls on the land in Vikhroli.

The petition, filed last month, is expected to be heard by a single judge bench of the high court on July 31.
