Comments from Mr. Subrat Nath, Director India and Asia Pacific, Talgo with reference to the forthcoming Union budget for the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
Mr. Subrat Nath, Director India and Asia Pacific, Talgo said, “Indian Railways is the iron chain that holds our country together. Though the Indian Railways network is progressing at a healthy rate, there is a need to adopt some bold initiatives and innovative measures in its passenger service. In order to ensure a better passenger service in the near future, specific investment needs to be made to ensure modernization in terms of rolling stock, signaling, upgrading the track and stations, and also to reduce the number of level crossings. This year’s budget is crucial as it is a midterm budget for the present government, and with allocation of funds, we also expect that the budget will announce specific time frame for execution of all the projects.”
