Asserting that the Indian Railways is trying it best to provide world class facilities to the passengers, Union Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu is upbeat about providing confirmed tickets to all commuters by 2020.
Speaking in an exclusive conversation with ETV News head Jagdeesh Chandra, Prabhu said he is trying his best to improve and better the service of Indian railways.
“Considering the present situation, I hope the supply and demand of tickets in railways will be met by 2020. This work is challenging looking at the country’s population and increasing dependence on railways,” Prabhu said.
The Railways Minister also said the available comforts in trains will also be increased in the days to come.
“Technologies will be used as much as possible in the coming days to make the Rail Communication systematic. As of now, the technologies which the Indian Railways is using is undoubtedly the best,” he added.
The Minister also expressed his views on the proposed bullet train service between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, saying it will completely change the scenario.
“It will have a positive impact on the economy and will also increase business. The bullet train is equipped with best technologies of the world, for which an agreement has been done with Japan,” he said.
