To discuss additional suburban local train services and freeing Railway-owned land of hawkers.

Central Railway (CR) General Manager Sunil Kumar Sood met several members of the Parliament from Mumbai and Thane district to discuss additional suburban local train services and freeing Railway-owned land of hawkers.

Mumbai North East MP Kirit Somaiya brought up the issue of increasing the height of platforms, Bombardier rakes, and the conversion of suburban trains from Alternate Current (AC) to Direct Current (DC).
