Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu today said the Railways is in an overhauling phase and its network will be transformed completely in next five years.
"With the stress on 'Rail Badhhega- Desh Badhhega', we launched several reformative and passengers friendly initiatives including an ambitious plan to induct about 40,000 coaches with improved interiors and upgraded facilities," Prabhu said.
"We are confident that the entire network of Indian Railways is going to be transformed in the next five year," the Minister said addressing a gathering organised by 'Rajasthan Meter Guage Pravasi Sangh', an association of
rail enthusiasts belonging to Rajasthan, living here.
"Our effort to retrofit 40,000 odd coached is going to be a game changer as it will not only transform the entire rail network, but it will also generate jobs," said the minister.
"Railways has prepared a clear cut roadmap under which Rs 8.5 lakh crore of investment has been planned in the next five years to make the network one of the best in the world," Prabhu said, adding setting up of Rail Coach Factories is a part of it.
He also said his ministry was working to upgrade the Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Kolkata corridor which will increase the speed of trains.
General Manager of Western Railway A K Gupta, MLAs Mangal Prabhat Lodha and Raj Purohit, president of the association Champat Mutta, among others were present at the occasion.

Mr Prabhu has been giving assurance of long term improvement and growth with the kind of investments he is making. It is appreciable on his part that he is showing concerns about securing the future of Railways. However, there are wide range of issues that required(/s) urgent attention and action. Instead of finding short term, urgent solutions for the same, he has taken long routes which has increased the time passengers have to suffer. Construction of DFC to solve the crisis of NCR is one such example. Wish he balanced both present and past in equal manner.

First all the Platforms in all the Stations in India as High Level Platforms.
Example.British era famous Vanchi Maniachi junction Station Platforms have to be made as High Level Platforms.
Secondly ,Requested to provide a direct passenger train/ link passenger train from all the Indian Railway Stations to their State Headquarters so as to have the lowest fares for the common and poor people to reach State Headquarters.
Thirdly ,All the State capitals / Major Cities / Major Tourist Spots have to be interconnected well with all the 4 Metros of Delhi,Mumbai,Chennai and Kolkatta by at least one weekly direct expresses or passing through expresses.
