The fact that the Railway Budget spared any hike in passenger fares and freight

Further, with the Minister showing continued inclination towards an increase in
private participation in the years to come, opens up immense opportunities for the
private sector to contribute to the growth story of Indian Railways. Overall, the
Railway Budget can be stamped as a positive one with a visionary agenda set for
Indian Railways to follow over the next decade.

Though number of trains are being introduced but punctuality of the trains should also be looked into. Goods trains should also carry goods within a time limit so that service of the goods trains are utilized. There should also be a punctuality in delivery of goods through the goods trains so that people will prefer to transport their goods through trains which will bring 4 times profit to the railway department.
