Take action on the Babus who tried to sabotage the project and ban Medha from the project. They all should be fired.

Them engineers I tell you, you ask us the right question we will give you what you want.

If you don’t know what you want, don’t expect miracles from us.
============
Passenger fatalities in train accidents:

2016-17: 195
2017-18: 28
2018-19: 16
2019-20: 0
2020-21: 0

(Ministry of Railways)


That’s not the reason. Conversion of ICF coaches in LHB is.

LHB coaches don’t roll over each other after accident. This has brought deaths to 0, with minor injuries.

India's first indigenous luxury cruise liner to be launched by IRCTC today. Details here

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) will launch the country’s first indigenous cruise liner from Saturday, in partnership with Cordelia Cruises – a private company. The bookings can be done from the IRCTC web portal soon as the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) normalises and international cruises can resume their normal operations, reports the PTI news agency. The luxury travel offering in the form of the indigenous cruise will take guests on-boards to some of the most popular Indian and international tourist destinations – such as Goa, Diu, Kochi, the Lakshadweep islands, and Sri Lanka.

@Haldilal , the plan of replacing all the non-AC locals with AC coaches was perceived much much earlier. What came out of it? Afaik they even ordered hundreds of train sets from ICF.
Ya'll Nibbiars The First class is mostly ac coaches and even the second class will become soon. Hum to third class se travel kart hai.

Looks like one more upgraded railway station ready for inauguration.

Sir M Visvesvaraya terminal, Bangalore
Old name : Baiyyappanahalli railway station


Wrong... This is completely newly built railway terminal utilising the existing railway coach terminal land at maruthi seva nagar.
Baiyappanahalli railway station is another railway station in baiyappanahalli on chennai line 2kms away from this new terminal

News just out:-
Paradigm shift. Indian Railways Stations Development Corporation (IRSDC) to be shut down, work of station redevelopment and maintenance to be handed over to Zonal HQs. Orders are already out.
Being done on reccomendation of Finance Ministry that has asked all Ministries to rationalize the number of PSUs working under them. This in turn is based on detailed Report by Principal Economic Advisor Sanjeev Sanyal, who has also asked for shutting down the Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE), Centeral Organization for Modernization of Workshops (COMW) and Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS). Other recommendations include merging Indian Railway Construction Limited (IRCON) and Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL), merger of RailTel with Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), merging directorates to bring Railway Board strength down from 250 to 100, handing over of Railways Schools to respective State Governments or turning them into Kendriya Vidyalayas. Another reccomendation was to unify the following functions under IRCTC:-
  • Passenger tickets
  • Train crew management
  • Fixed and Rolling stock management
  • Freight invoicing
  • Train operations
