Privatisation of Railways without consultation
Also, private players will now run intercity express trains and suburban trains in Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Secunderabad.
If this will be done be providing tickets at the same price, its ok. If we will be paying much higher rates - I want to know why there was no consultation done on this matter by Railways.
Naysayers said some time back, the Modi Govt will privatise everything. I didn't believe them. Show me the goodness here Mantri sahib. more
These are some of the reasons I can think of and if these are corrected probably Govt can perform better. more
On one hand people complain about services offered by railways, at the same time they do not to pay for better service. Let there be competition.
When LIC was a monopoly, we had very bad service from them, which improved only after private players came in. Same is case with Air India, tax payers money is bring utilised to keep it alive. MTNL, wiremen still ask for bribes, when a complaint is loved for non functioning land limes. Visit MTNL office, employees inherently come at least an hour later to office. Government servants become complacent due to strong worker unions and permanent job status, under any circumstances. more
Catering has been privatised, has it been really improved? more
There was a time when telephones were solely under Govt control. It was considered a luxury at that time. See what has happened after it was liberalised and private players were allowed. Prices have fallen, service has improved, and BSNL is on the brink of collapse. Just shows Govt can not and should not do business. As Mr Chatterjee said, except in special cases Govt should sell off all public sector enterprises like HMT, BHEL, BEML, ICF, RWF etc. It will make these units far more efficient and better products will come out. more
