Railways is planning to operate 151 trains on 109 routes to private operators for 35 years. Some questions were raised by prospective bidders of private operators. To which the railway has responded on Friday.
The government may soon approve it from the Cabinet so that this provision cannot be challenged in the court. Under the Railway Act, only the central government or various ministries will jointly decide the fare of the railway.
An official said the fare is expected to be higher than the existing train services, given the maximum fare limit and not the cost. Private operators will also be able to sell tickets through their website, but their website must be connected to the passenger reservation system.
There is also some confusion about giving the train operation in private hands. As many companies have asked how the railway can achieve 160 km / h, while its infrastructure does not support this speed.
On this, the railway has said in its reply that a draft will come soon on these issues, which can be released soon. Apart from this, private operators train in case of any accident. The situation is still not clear about that situation. At the same time, a consensus has not been reached regarding train maintenance.
