Indian railways undoubtedly is one of the most surprising and amazing thing to happen for the country and its citizens. This is because, this institution boasts of employing the maximum number of employees in the world and also runs the maximum number of trains on a daily basis, ferrying millions of citizens and foreigners visiting the country throughout the length and breadth.

This is a fact that is acknowledged by most people and is indeed something amazing. Besides this, it is the Indian railways that help people of all states and communities to come together and explore and understand one another.

In short, it can be stated that it is this transport medium that helps people to visit every part of India and to understand it much better. Besides this, it is also the cheapest mode of transportation not only in the country, but also acknowledged abroad. Even though inflation has raised double digits, the concerned authorities and the governments have tried to ensure that the prices of the fares do not raise more than the basic requirement, so that the poorest of the poor in the country can also apply it.

Besides it, there are several forms of discounts offered to the citizens in some form of the other, which further brings down the rates and helps them to avail the transport to reach their destination. It is really a wonder that is not otherwise seen even in the developed countries.

With millions of bookings taking place from throughout the country, the authorities have embraced technology to free the counters and to make it possible for the citizens to carry out the bookings and to Indian railway check pnr status enquiry and other vital information over the net. This dream has been realized with the launching of official railway website along with numerous private ones that are linked to the main portal that provides relevant and accurate information.

This automatically helps the individuals to avoid agents and long queues that are generally seen outside the ticket counters. Be it a single ticket or a for a group, booking and checking the status online is fun, quick and just takes a couple of clicks and mentioning of some vital personal information.

The railways do play a vital role in the lives of the Indians and there is no denying the fact. The presence of online site to verify PNR Status has further simplified the task of booking and checking the status that would be required to ensure that the berths are confirmed and the coach and seat numbers have been allotted. This does help the individual to have safe and smooth journey and also to avoid tussle with the other co-passengers.

The verified status that is confirmed can then printed out and shown to the Ticket Collector during the journey. The printed paper is very much valid like that of the ticket that is issued from the counter. The individual just needs to have an ID proof that needs to be displayed along with the print out ticket.

Within a year Indian Railways to Bring Bullet Trains Talgo Trains to Shatabdi Routes

Talgo is a Spanish company that manufactures standard, intercity and high-speed passenger trains that are also popularly called the “Bullet trains”. They have been quite famous in the world of trains and are known to be quite luxurious. And nowadays, luxury is not a big deal in India. All the luxury brands are setting up their franchises here in our country and nothing seems alienated anymore. Our Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu is all about bringing development and international brands to invest in our railways.

He has been trying to bring this luxurious brand of trains in our country to improve the speed and make commuting between places become easy for the common man. These Talgo trains are usually quite small with very few coaches. But if we are to bring this brand to our country, their company promises to modify the trains according to our needs. Apparently, the Indian Railway plans to bring about 2- 5 Talgo trains in less than a year’s time.

Our railway ministry is waiting for an approval on the Niti Aayog before asking the company to start manufacturing the trains and lease them. Once, this approval comes through, all the formalities will take no time to complete and these trains will be running on our tracks. These trains are to run on the Shatabdi routes and will have about 26 coaches which are very much similar to the existing Shatabdi trains. The costs and budgets are not yet known. The company is to use international coaches which will be modified according to the Indian needs. The major changes highlight on the toilets, platform heights and will get the Indian taste in them. The coaches are apparently 45% lighter and 30% more energy efficient when compared to the existing trains. They aim at running at faster speeds and reduce the travel time of the passengers.
