Today while I was returning home, my EMU crossed Secundrabad-Howrah Falaknuma Express and I was shocked to see that almost the entire train was covered in ads. Be it sleeper or AC, ads covered every part (except the coach number) and I felt bad because according to me, it spoils the beauty of the trains. So my question to everyone is, should ads be placed on the coaches? Also, I would appreciate it if you comment below and enlighten us with your views
Yes. it brings money to IR and trains look beautiful no matter what74%23
No. it spoils the beauty of the train and money can be brought in from other sources19%6
I have a different opinion (please comment below)6%2

When IR is facing financial crisis, it carry 90% of its paxs on subsidied fares.
Already non fare revenue of IR is too low as compared to many other railway systems in world.
It is necessary for IR to increase non fare revenue. Last financial yr there was impressive 75-80% growth and much higher targets have been set in coming years.

When IR is running in loss the beaty is no more important.
Also with the quality ads the train looks more better.
