The stage is set for the 2016-17 Union Railway Budget which will be today presented by Union Railway Minister Mr. Suresh Prabhu in the Lok Sabha.
The common man is having lots of expectations from this Rail Budget, hoping for no fare hike, new trains, new routes, better services and safety provisions, etc.
The budget session of parliament will begin February 23, 2016 with the Railway Budget on February 25, Economic Survey on February 27 and the Union Budget on February 29, 2016.
A cash strapped Indian Railways, runs 10,500 trains and ferries 22 million passengers daily over 64,000 km of track.
The budget is set to focus on delivering concrete results —trains running at speeds of 160-200 kmph, better passenger amenities, quality food and safer travel by 2019 — to showcase the NDA government’s achievements before the 2019 general elections.
The budget is likely to hike the plan outlay to around Rs 1.25 lakh crore for modernization and capacity enhancement with an aim to de-congest saturated routes.
Rail connectivity tops the expectations chart of every region. However, in far flung states of the Northeast region, rail connectivity remains an issue even after 67 years of Independence. It is expected that the region will be connected by rail, and efforts are being made in this area at the fastest pace.
