Commentary/Human InterestAug 10 2017 (10:41) What’s wrong with the Indian Railways?

Is the business model of the Indian Railways broken? Is corrective action, even where it is being taken, too little and coming in too late?
July has been a particularly cruel month. There was a scathing report by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) on the quality of food served to passengers. As if to validate this, media splashed reports thereafter of a dead lizard being found in the veg biriyani served to a passenger. The CAG also found the blankets supplied to passengers in AC compartments were filthy and the Railways were levying a surcharge for journey on “superfast” trains when these often ran late.
