Dear Railways Circle Members:
Attached is the document from last review on Additional Revenue Opportunities.
With this post, we seek ideas that can be implemented immediately and will generate revenues. One such input received is to brand trains and stations with a Corporate Name.
Please share more such ideas that can be implemented quickly and will help railways realize revenues in the Fiscal Year starting April 1, 2015.
We very much appreciate the ideas in the attached and are reviewing them for action. Meanwhile we look forward to your revenue ideas with immediate impact.
