Railways Minister Piyush Goyal enumerated a number of new initiatives taken by the government to make lives easier for the passengers at an event in Delhi Tuesday. Take a look:
- To improve punctuality of trains, "instead of the station master recording the time, data loggers have been put at interchange points which would be computer generated. A small step, but it brought accuracy and reflected the truth. Between 1st April, 2018 and today, it has improved it to 73-74%," Goyal said.
- Railways has undertaken electrification seriously and aims to save $2 billion every year.

- New engine for free! Goyal said, "Railways’ engineers have figured out a solution for diesel engines: the cost for overhauling the diesel engine, same or less will be spent on converting it to electric. So without spending a dollar, Railways can have a new engine."
