Railway Budget 2017
Common Man Vs Budget
  • Cheap passes for commuters
  • Improvement in amenities , safety , security and punctuality
  • Good food and adequate drinking water supply
  • Medical facility, Ambulance in every railway station and one doctor in long route trains
Industry vs Budget
  • To commit timely delivery of goods, Railways should run the freight trains like passenger trains i.e., time-scheduled freight trains in all-major routes to ensure better customer service
  • As the existing rail network is not adequate as compared to the burgeoning rail freight business, it should be expanded and dedicated freight lines should be upgraded or accelerated to avoid congestion on the operative routes. The number of existing rakes, wagons and racks should also be substantially increased to cater to the increasing demand.
