The Indian Railways has come up with a plan to provide its in-house magazine on running trains to its passengers. The Railways would float a tender in this connection soon to give the contract to an agency that could ensure timely and regular supply of books and magazines on running trains in all the zones.
The Railway Board recently approved this plan keeping in view passengers’ interests while undertaking journeys by premier trains. The in-house magazine will be provided first in all premier trains, including Rajdhani Express and Shatabdi Express.
It could be introduced in more mail and express trains, depending on the demand as well as response from the passengers. The magazine will feature stories that would interest everyone. This apart, information would be provided about the Indian Railways and its recent developments.
However, this proposal is yet to come to the Danapur Rail Division of East Central Railway. As is known, the Railways has totally banned private vendors to move on running trains for safety reasons. This move has been welcomed by the passengers.
