Rail Infrastructure—Journey Since Indian Independence and Beyond

  • Dhingra, Tarun
  • SHARMA, SANJEEV
Abstract

Indian Railways (IR) is the backbone of India’s public transport network. One of the largest employers, it is the greenest, cheapest, fastest, and safest means of surface transport and caters to the needs of both the commuters and movement of goods for long distances in India. To achieve a 5 trillion dollar economy of India by 2024, the Task Force on National Infrastructure Pipeline (NIP) formed by the Government of India (GOI) has projected total investment of Rs. 111 lakh crore in crucial infrastructure sectors over five years FY 2020 to 2025. In railways, projects worth Rs. 13.68 lakh crore (12% of the projected investments) have been identified under this investment package. Such a significant investment calls for a review of the current status and milestones achieved by IR to plan further improvements for the sector. This paper attempts to review seven decades of IR to study various broad parameters like performance and safety, human resource, organization design and benchmarking and propose the framework for future rail infrastructure planning.
