1. Increase penalty charges.
2. Improve the facilities in Railway Stations.
3. Increase the frequency of tracks (Doubling, Tripling etc.) on required lines to reduce traffic.
4. Increase in frequency of Sleeper Class and Unreserved coaches in trains. (Nowadays many LHbfied trains have few sleepers and UR coach)
Reduce the use of 3E as it is very uncomfortable for long travelling.
6. LHBfying trains.

My contribution

1) First upgrade all Pitlines and Coach Depots to handle atleast 24 Coacher LHBs
2) run Special Trains with Freed ICF Rakes or Newly Converted LHB Rakes.
3) Maximize production of SL
3A 2A 1A GS Coaches
4) Open few more Coach Factories so point #3 can be achieved faster
5) Reintroduce Suvidha Trains but with Dynamic pricing maxing out @ ₹3000 or at max 30% of Base SL Price for the route
6) reintroduce Humsafar-Duronto-Garib Rath Express and ensure proper punctuality
6.1) Expanding on Punctuality... All Premium Trains to maintain atleast 90% Priority,
6.2) Mail Express /SF Trains to maintain atleast 60% Priority.
7) Passenger Trains to maintain 40% Priority
8) Ensure No Rake Mixing (example: Humsafar Coach in Duronto/Duronto Coach in SF)
9) Complete Prioritization on LHBFication.
10) Station Upgradation to ONLY be done on Important Stations on the route
10.1) Basic Amenities to be provided in Smaller Stations
11) Train OBHS Staff to be Outsourced and Train Cleanliness to be monitored 24/7 with a monitoring teams for every Zone

I would consider
1) Fencing of all tracks and placing long vision security cameras which having modern technology will be connected to the next station to find out any abnormalities was there or not.

2)Robots can be implemented soon instead of RPFs (as they can work tirelessly)

3)Strict ticket checking systems, improvement of safety in Railway stations, vigorous checking just like in Metro stations, introduction of E Ticket in Local/ UR trains

4) Selected important trains and locomotives will be painted with arts replicating local culture and traditions.

5)Will restore senior citizen concession

6)Will upgrade important single lines to double lines
7) Existing Quadruple lines will be made as Six lines
(2 lines for Local/MEMU/Passenger Up and down, 2 lines for Mail/Exp/SF/other premium trains, 2 lines for Maalgadi like DFC)

8)Will implement Southern dedicated train corridor just like for Western and Eastern India.

9)Trains will have soon entertainment facilities like Smart TV, unlimited Wifi especially in AC coaches

10) More trains connecting South India to North India

11)Will restore Sleeper class with slightly increased fare in most of trains whose sleeper coaches were lost due to rake standardization, but maintenance will be gradually improved by govt approved agencies only

12)An additional coach for Doctors , Nurses and Paramedics will be attached for important trains to help patients incase of emergency.

13)Will implement Dining car in premium and important trains

12) Improvement of Pantry Car cleanliness and strict cleanliness of PC to be ensured. An food chemical technologist will be appointed and a food lab also be present in PC to test food for any adulteration or contamination.

13) Toilets will be standardized so that no smell from toilets will come (like in flights)

14) Also manufacturing LHB SL trains with max MPS from 130 to 160 and LHB AC trains from 160 to 220 by R&D.

15) Improving MPS and allowing max speeds upto 220 KMph on very important routes like Golden Quadrilateral route, MAS NDLS route, MAS CSMT, MAS HWH , NDLS MMCT, NDLS, HWH , HWH CSMT route via NGP

16)For rush control during festive hours and to reduce WL, special trains with run with nonimal fares

17) Permanent closure of all Railway level crossings and will be replaced with Subways or bridges

1 compliments
In short
The common point is revamping rake standardization method
Instead either fully AC train or non AC train
