Immediate New Revenue Opportunities - Inputs Needed

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.

We can start mobile phone ticketing which can reduce expense of maintaining large server capacities more  
Increasing revenue by leveraging existing services would be the fastest method. 1. Extended travel on the same PNR with extra charge. (if seat can be adjusted) 2. Limit platform ticket to 30 mins and allow extensions for about 3Rs per 15 mins 3. Limit carry luggage to 20 kgs per passenger for journey over 500 kms. More weight can be allowed on extra charge 4. Allow transfer of reserved tickets to relatives with additional cost. (10%) of the total ticket amount. 5. For day reservations use upper berth of second class sleeper coach as a 1 seat reservation. more  
Thanks fo all your inputs! more  
Library in the Train on chargeable basis Conference room inside the train on rental basis for selected trains Selling of items by railway dept in side the train. like in airline air hostess sell the items If it is feasible ATM facility inside the train for passengers for selected trains more  
A policy of coach gifting (railway specified) by corporates with complete advertisement rights can augment capital need in an effective way more
