Welcome to Make Indian Railways Better circle!
Upon many requests from our Transform India circle members, we are pleased to share that we are starting this circle with the objective of making Indian Railways better.
It enables all citizens to bring up issues and ideas that will make Indian Railways efficient, cleaner, safer and better.
Consolidated inputs from this circle will be submitted to the Railway Minister and Minister of State for Railways on a regular basis.
So, join in and help Make Indian Railways Better!

Being connected with Indian railways for more then 40 years, and travelled in many states in India, I feel that the basic facilities should be improved by way of cleanliness and punctuality. Simple hygenic food should be easily available, at all stations, with SM responsible, for each station. Only passengers should be allowed into the stations. Platform ticket should be made compulsory and should be hiked, with time stamp. Beggers and unwanted persons should be removed from the Railway premisis. Unlicenced hawkers also should be discouraged. Fines and penalties should be hefty. more
India needs higher speed trains as higher speeds mean more trains per day per route and therefore better utilization of rail capacity. But there are some fundamental issues like safety & hygiene which needs to be addressed before we can go high speed & high tech. Derailments & train collisions are commonplace now due to the sheer negligence of rail authorities. Eg: The GPS based anti collision device (Rail raksha kavach) developed by Konkan Railways. If that is implemented all over India, train collisions can become a thing of the past. Also level crossings and the practice of people crossing over tracks to the next platform are incompatible with high speed trains. Similarly it is high time that we introduce chemical / bio toilets and discontinue the archaic practice of flushing out on to the tracks, making our rail tracks the "world's longest toilet" ! more
1. Need to change chart preparation process of ticket and berth allocation algorithm to raise the railway revenue as well to ease ticket availability. [I can present detail algorithm is required] 2. Need to change the parcel system so it can become fast medium of transportation. In order to do that we need to change the parcel coach's loading/unloading mechanism by introducing some automatic system. [I can present some design if required]. 3. Need to change the design of Toilet so it will be automatically cleaned. 4. Need to install GPS system in all train to avoid accidents. 5. Need to change design of railway platform to make it automatically cleaned and people will not fall down into duct between platform and train. 6. Chang the design of guard's cabin and give him entire coach. In this coach all police member and TTE will sit, because as of now its very tough to find police and TTE in train. Most of the time TTE/police will be in AC or pantry which is not accessible from sleeper in the night when crime will happen. Remember this coach should have internal access from all caoches [internal door should not closed in night]. more
