Dream up being ushered into a train by a hostess who gifts you a rose bud as tender music plays in the background.
It will shortly be a honesty, with the Railways deciding to bring train hostesses on shortly to be started Delhi-Agra Gatiman Express, the first train in India to run at a speed of 160 kmph.
Gearing up to declare the Gatiman Express next month, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will publicize different characteristics of the first semi-high speed train in the country.
There are several different challenges before Minister Suresh Prabhu for showing a people friendly Railway Budget of 2016 - 2017, these challenges obviate him from offering a populist budget.
Presently Indian Railway is giving rebate to various categorize of passengers accompanied senior citizens, specially challenged travellers, VIPs etc. these discount suffer a large amount, and it reflects badly the financial position of the Railway, along with these the execution of 7th Pay Commission in this year also factor a huge financial stowage for the railway.
According to the pleading of the Commission, salaries and pensions of government employees and retirees,would be boomed up by nearly 30 percent on the lower basic pay.
As the reason the railways has exchanged the policy towards children. So far, children amongst the ages of 5 and 12 years were allotted to a suitable berth on payment of half the regular fare. However, after April 21, children will be allotted a berth only on payment of full fare, though they can still journey by paying half. Advance bookings as per the altered guidelines had already begun.
