Indian Railways, one of the largest railway networks of the world, has been the prime mode of passenger and freight transportation in the country.
Railways has been an integral part of the Indian economy and operates more than 11,000 trains per day, of which around 7,000 are passenger trains.
Vision 2015 of the Indian Railways clearly lists plans for extensive capacity expansion and infrastructure improvement. It also adopts the Public Private Partnership model to meet these needs.
