"A Technology Transformation for Indian Railways"

Stop Trading Hours for Dollars




With a lot of concentration applied over the segment, the Indian railways are going good and recording some notable profit for the government. However, this is not the only surprise which our government has given us in the recent times but, extra shocking for all of us is that almost all the money earned through railways is being invested for the development of railways only.

This is not a myth and one can say that because the developments taking place in Indian railways are very much visible to the people travelling through new as well as old trains. First development which took place more than a year ago is of easy railway bookings. This was made possible only with the development of IRCTC website which is easing off masses with the facility of online railway tickets.

Besides railway reservation, the benefit for common man has also been arrived in the form of an easy access to train schedule. Gone are the days when people had to open a heavy booklet to have a look at the Indian train timetable. Today, the usage of web is enough to have looked at the schedules and that too updated ones which gets manipulated at the last moment, leaving a lot of people wait at the platform.

Further, we can take up the fact of comfortable railway travel which is very much visible today even if we are not traveling through well known Rajdhani or Shatabdi Express. The new arrivals in Indian railways like Duronto, Yuva Express and many more have ensured that whether a person is traveling in AC or non-AC, he should end up experiencing a comfortable journey.

Now coming to the point of declining train fares, which were manipulated at a higher extent in order to provide some benefit to the common men in the country? With the trains like Garib Rath etc, many people with lower earnings have found the comfort in a train journey. This almost impossible thing has turned out to be possible with a business mind which applied by the former Railway Minister Laloo Prasad Yadav and present minister Mamta Banerjee.

One can say technology as well as the increasing corporate system has played an important role in developing the whole scenario with Indian railways. Firstly, the technology has boosted the usage of plastic money due to booking an online railway ticket has turned out to be an activity of few minutes. Further, the corporate system has sponsored the Indian railways which have bought money in the picture and benefit for a lot of train travellers.
