Indian Railways is the fourth largest rail network in the world.
It is expected to become the third largest network in 5 years.
Railways had earned more than Rs 2.4 lakh crore in FY23.
New Delhi, Indian Railways is called the lifeline of the country. Every day, Indian Railways transports crores of people and goods worth billions of rupees from one place to another. However, Indian Railways usually faces criticism in the country and abroad for one thing that it has very less number of tracks. Those who do not know about Indian Railways, they even say that trains here run on single line only. This is said when it is universally accepted that Indian Railways is the fourth largest rail network in the world. A recent video shared by the Union Minister is enough to show the mirror to such people.
Minister of State for Railways Darshana Jardosh has shared a video on Twitter in which 5 trains can be seen leaving on different railway lines from the same place. In this, a local train, 2 express trains and 2 freight trains can be seen simultaneously on different adjacent tracks. This scene is being created in the video. The Union Minister captioned the video as, “India’s lifeline ‘Indian Railways’ in its various forms. The new rail of the new India – adds vibrancy to travel, freight and transportation.
