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

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.

No wrong. In placing ads inside or outside train and stations.this is only way to protect from privitazation.even if privitization takes place companies will do the same to. Make profits.many resources in ir are not utilized

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