As announced by the Minister of Railways in the Railway Budget 2016-17, it is proposed to provide train borne entertainment by installing Public Address systems in trains. Details have not been finalized but no expense is envisaged by Railways as the services are to be operated by selected licensees, through commercial advertisements.
This Press Release is based on the information given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha on 07.12.2016 (Wednesday).

their 'cosmetic changes' are done at public money and they will pay for it when public gets 'chance' to settle the score...
I got two messages in whatsapp group : which promotes the image of chief of govt :
1- demonetization forced certain mafia dawn in pakistan to commit suicide. Suicide is fact. but reason was way back arrest in 2008 and subsequent court proceedings
post death of Amma, the tussle of successor was thwarted by same chief...
Both are too bold statements to believe
They have installed 'propaganda machinery everywhere, in govt
off govt
Constantly hammers public.
But if people are not getting bread they will boil and burn at appropriate time....

"Details have not been finalized but no expense is envisaged by Railways as the services are to be operated by selected licensees, through commercial advertisements."
Speaks everything.
And this is not a new thing.
Way back Vaishali express has on time announcement and music play system.
this facility is more tough than installation.
At present IR can't even maintain original Toilet Door, Taps and Flush system what we can assume about this so called revenue making machine.
There is another aspect too, Not everyone likes continues music or audio play. There are so many valid reasons for this.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries.
