JAN BAGHIDARI Innovation challenge

Indian Railways have decided to conduct a public competition on ‘How to raise money for Railways to provide better Services (Jan Bhagidari)’.

Indian Railways occupies a unique position in the socio-economic map of the country. Energy efficient, economical in land use and with a high degree of operating efficiency, the railways are considered a vehicle of growth contributing to rapid industrial and infrastructural development of the country. However, in the process, Railways tend to subsidize and nourish the economy by incurring a social cost, much beyond the normal call of any transport system. This constrains our ability to spend generously on enhancing the customer-experience and hence, we would like to invite the general public, industries, academia, research institutions, chambers of commerce, Zonal Railways/PUs and other units of Railways to come up with ideas on HOW TO RAISE MONEY FOR BETTER SERVICES.
