There should be very transparent rules and system of data collection and monitoring of the facilities provided at the IR railway stations like:
(1) Daily passenger volume- class wise
(2) Daily revenue collection from paxs- class wise
(3) Daily parcel collection
(4) Daily
retiring room etc collection
(5) Daily sales of meals/eatables
(6) Daily platform ticket sale
(7) Number of trains taking stoppage at the station etc which should be done in open and transparent manner.
All the facilities like benches, waiting rooms, ac deluxe lounges, retiring rooms, lavatories, refreshment rooms, water coolers, water purifiers, lifts, escalators, travelators, automatic ticket vending machines, ticket counters, atm counters, book stall, pharmacy counters, circulating area, etc should be provided strictly based on the facts and realities rather than just on the demands put forth by some persons.
Places with substantial international tourists should be given priority for station development to international standards,(subject to a minimal revenue collection), so that they are motivated to aboard train for their journey within in India.
