Increasing the rail kiraya is not only the solution to overcome from operating cost. Something should be beyond the profitability Rail kiraya should be reduce to 50%

Thinking IRCTC / ministry of railways should take some good step to find out alternate source of income to reduce rail kiraya .

 Advertisement on rail coaches inside & outside. Frame need to be established.
 Advertisement on railway station and all platforms. Ex. Hotels & tourist places, education, food chain, insurance etc.
 Modernization of railway platform & stations like metro rail station.
 Increasing the competition in mobile /telecom / internet in each platform of station, all service provider need to be invited to establish their setup for increasing quality of service in public benefit. Govt. income increase from lease on these services.
 Increasing the competition in food chain and restaurant inside the platform or railway station- all big food chain supplier need to be invite like Tata, Birla, Reliance, Haldiram, Agarwal sweets, Nestle, Mahindra, Pepsi, IRCTC, many more dedicated Indian companies for India economy growth . To reduce black money all transaction should be bar coded or computerize with pan / tin Number associated in all food corners.
 Ratio of food chain corners at least 8-10 per platform.
 To increase the tourist special coach for NRI, outside country people, ticket should be always available .To promote tourist places in train way. International standard should be follow in these coaches.
 Special trains for easy to reachable on tourist places, complete package.
 All railway station should be like small mall all facility should be available like movie, food cloth, may be they can restrict /separate the way to go inside the real rail platform to maintain the security. Government will get lot for income on lease concept and taxes. Public will get healthy environment and services.
 . To increase the opportunity for improvement all platform and trains should be aim for ISO 9001- improvement ideas like station train route LED display, Station advertisement Information Led display (Benchmarking Delhi metro trains)
 Free internet in railway train & platform.
 To increase the income for government body they need to launch the IPO for establishing Railway mall, food chain, and alternate 2 extra rail track – one for goods and one for public interest.
 Holi places like Varanasi, Haridwar, vashnavdevi , dwarka, maihar, ujjain...many more looking for special dedicated trains and special rules for senior citizen above 55 years.
 Tourist places like Tajmahal, Goa, Manali, shimla, masouri, jaipur… many more looking for special trains and extra coaches for general public .
 General public will also get some assurance.
 Quality of services will increase.
 Tractability of public interest identifies.
 Government income will increase
 Tractability of income will increase in this food chain area, advertisement,
 Public will get better service.
 Duplicate brand will reduce. more  
i hv not found any changes as such. as long as the attitude of working staff is not changed then there is no value of such publicity.They have security of Job hence they never bother to be royal toward their duty more  
Cleanliness should be visible to everyone inside the all the train Including stations.

Note:- There must be fines for public/passengers if found not maintaining the standard of cleanliness and it has to be enforced strictly. more  
It is not wrongly said "if railways go corruption-free, tracks of gold can be laid throughout the country".
I totally agree with Subhojit Chatterjee Experience above. I too had almost same experience where refund was denied citing no convincing reason. And you can't fight with a computerised system where there is no person to be addressed too. more  
Dear Friend;
I have recently went to Lucknow and returned after a week.As per my observation after making to and fro journey in third AC the cleanness of platforms have improved ,the coaches are improved but the cleanness in toilet is not improved.The quality of tea and coffee is not improved.
