CSR funds for Railways Passenger Amenities

Dear Railways Circle Members:

We in the Railways Ministry are evaluating how CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) Funds from corporates can be used to finance passenger amenities upgrade in Railways.

This initiative is an attempt to finance passenger amenities as collectively requested by you without increasing Rail Fares. If you can give ideas on how this can be done and even propose a structure for it, we would greatly appreciate them.

We look forward to your participation!

Pl provide water in all bathrooms at railway stations.Nobody refills water in tanks making journey a curse.TC only checks tickets and does nothing else.They must note down defective eqpts of compartments and get these repaired during halts. more  
CSR funds are actually to be used in near by areas of industry located as those are effected persons due to industry.It is not correct to use for other purposes.Tomorrow some other govt department may come and ask these.Hence CSR funds should be utilized for the local amenities. more  
As a nation, we must learn to pay for the goods and services we consume!
There is no great merit in compelling corporate entities to allocate CSR funds for providing passenger amenities. On the contrary, CSR funds must be used to provide education, medical treatment etc to the under-privileged and the needy.
Complete transparency can be maintained by providing for advertising rights to corporate entities and the revenue so generated can be used to pay for (say) TVs and Wi-Fi on trains and for other passenger amenities. more  
Corporate dont travel by railwyas so why they shuold provide fund??People is not the responsibility of corporate it is responsibility of govt. so please dont give them a chance to bargain for doing this The passanger fares are very cheap in the country they pay 100 for 10 KM in taxi or rickshaw but when it comes to pay to railwyas they alwyas cry it is our habit but if facts are placed before them in a correct way than fares can be increased provided that facilities do made avilable to them

the most of the goods are transported by corporates only so place a seperate tax on freight and it can be used as CSR

reduce the strength of unproductive force from railwyas adn use that money in the age of computeres the post of Steno is obsolete Hindi officeres are also not doing any productive work but there are hindi translator hindi steno
hindi babus and hindi officers and other highr officeres doing the same work just keep one this all will save a lot to railways
with the changing operational system there may be thousand of the worker taking pay but have no work to do try to find out and you will have ample money for CSR more  
Railways are charging more from passengers for improved amenities. So it is the duty of Railways to provide it They cannot put this under CSR. more
