NEW DELHI: Stating that every customer is Railways' brand ambassador, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in his Rail Budget speech stressed that each time a traveller undertakes a journey the "satisfaction quotient must go up."
From no fare hike to smart coaches and ticketing facilities for unreserved travel, Prabhu announced a slew of measures aimed at enhancing customer experience. We take a look eleven such measures that will bring cheer to the common man:

1) For the unreserved passenger: Antyodaya Express and Deen Dayalu coaches - "We propose to introduce the Antyodaya Express, a long-distance, fully unreserved, superfast train service, for the common man to be operated on dense routes," Prabhu said.
.
"We will also add two to four Deen Dayalu coaches in some long distance trains for unreserved travel to enhance our carrying capacity for the masses. These coaches will also have facility for potable drinking water and a higher number of mobile charging points," he added.
.
...
more...

2) For the reserved passenger - Humsafar, Tejas and UDAY: Three select train services, Humsafar, Tejas and UDAY were announced. "Humsafar and Tejas will ensure cost recovery by way of tariff and non-tariff measures. Humsafar would be fully airconditioned third AC service with an optional service for meals," Prabhu said.
"Tejas, on the other hand will showcase the future of train travel in India. Operating at speeds of 130 kmph and above, it will offer onboard services such as entertainment, local cuisine, Wi-Fi, etc. through one service provider for ensuring accountability and improved customer satisfaction," he announced.
Prabhu also said that Railways will introduce overnight double-decker, Utkrisht DoubleDecker Air-conditioned Yatri (UDAY) Express on the busiest routes, which he claimed has the potential to increase carrying capacity by almost 40%.
.
3) No fare hike: Railway Budget spared passengers and goods movement from any increase in tariffs. Prabhu promised rationalising of the tariff structure.
.
4) SMART Coaches: Railways is planning to re-imagine the design and layout of coaches to ensure higher carrying capacity and provision of new amenities including automatic doors, bar-code readers, bio-vacuum toilets, water-level indicators, accessible dustbins, ergonomic seating, improved aesthetics, vending machines, entertainment screens, LED lit boards for advertising, PA system and more.
"These new SMART (Specially Modified Aesthetic Refreshing Travel) coaches would cater to emerging needs of our customers and also ensure lower unit cost of operations due to higher carrying capacity," Prabhu said.
.
5) Ticketing facilities: Railways intend to commence sale of tickets through hand held terminals for the benefit of the suburban and short distance travellers. "This would enable us to deploy multiple 'Points of Sale' with minimal infrastructure requirement. We also intend initiating sale of platform tickets through ticket vending machines which would be made compatible with not only cash but also credit/debit cards," he said.
Also, in the next 3 months, Railways will open the e-ticketing facility to foreign debit/credit cards for foreign tourists and NRIs. Bar coded tickets, scanners and access control on a pilot basis on major stations to tackle the menace of ticketless travel and ensure hassle free travel for passengers will be introduced.
Presently Railways has different digital solutions for ticketing, grievance redressal and other issues. "We intend to integrate all such facilities into two mobile apps; one dealing with all ticketing issues and the other for receipt and redressal of complaints and suggestions related to all our services," Prabhu proposed.

and the list goes on
After the recent rise in fares traveling on a preplanned holiday in 1st ac's in railways will not be a option for many especially if it is a rajdhani.
here are some fare comparisons of 1st ac rajdhani fare with ordinary airfare....
All fares are for 1st august
Delhi to Mumbai
1st
...
more...
ac fare Rs 4680 Airfare Rs 4011(spicejet)
Delhi to Kolkata
1st ac fare Rs 4775 Airfare Rs 4011(go air)
Delhi to Bangalore
1st ac fare Rs 6675 Airfare Rs 6341(spicejet)
Delhi to Hydrabad
1st ac fare Rs 5370 Airfare Rs 5848 (indigo)
Delhi to Chennai
1st ac fare Rs 6355 Airfare Rs 6341(spicejet) (31 st July)
..........and the list goes on
source: respective sites
hence I think that the recent fare revision will be too expensive for the railways.

Sir railways will always have their catch on the passanjars and I will tell u why.
- The airfares that you see are exclusive of the transaction charges which is around rs 150-200 and will keep increasing.
- The UDF is being raised and it will the only go upwards
-all are low cost airlines. But a pakat of cashews having 6 full and
...
more...
3 half pieces and it costs rs 70. Buy water just enough to swallow a tablet and pay rs 30. If you want to swalow capsule rs 60
-you cancel a 4000 tikat and you lose rs 2000.But you cancel a 5000 tikat on IR and you lose 100 only.
-Taxi to the airports may be 600-800 rs. But autorikshaw to the railway station rs 50-100 only.
-Many peepull suffer from the fear of flying,they will take train only.
Unless you are a high flying corporate whose tickets are reimbursed by your company and who values time more than anything you will travel in train.
-Most indians have too much time, they can afford the time.
-Too many concessions on IR.
And above all Indians genetically and historically fans of trains. Only a minute percentage of them are on IRI. Others dont say it but the affection is always there.
Yes low fares and promo fares will snatch away some from IR 1 AC but a majority will always remain here. They will always remain loyal.

This is just a fare comparison. What I mean is that if it goes on like this we will soon have train fares higher than air fares
