Rail Board renames two posts

The Mechanical versus Electrical turf war has been on for decades and has been responsible for slowing down many reform initiatives.

The Railway Board has reschristened two vital posts of its Members. Member Mechanical Hemant Kumar has now become Member Rolling Stock, in charge of all rolling stock, their maintenance, procurement and production. Similarly, Member Electrical A K Kapoor is now Member Traction, in charge of diesel as well electric locomotives and conventional as well as non-conventional fuel to run trains.

The Mechanical versus Electrical turf war has been on for decades and has been responsible for slowing down many reform initiatives. The latest move will end overlapping areas of responsibility.
