    Issue is 70% money goes in the form of pensions. About population, still large portion prefers railway. It is expected It will increase further if government focus on this and if provide facilities and correct timing schedule. WIFI , good service , & timing public is expecting.

    Thats not the case. Its about inadequate infra. Indian railways has been a loss making entity for such long time, its not because less ppl travel thru trains. its because of inadequate infra. the lines arent enough to accomodate the increase in trains or to facilitate high speed trains, so trains dont run at full capacity i.e. in terms of speed and frequency not on passenger basis.

    I dont underatand why people prefer road transport. Its dangeroud tje journey is not good and you thrown around in the buses.
    I have often done rawalpindi to Lahore on the train. 1st class is same price as a dawoo and its a much more comfortable journey.

    Maybe because train systems went really down the hill during Ppp tenure. Nobody wants to wait for hours on a busy crappy train station. Train stations are alps ridiculously crowded compared to bus stations.

    Railways need to audit the people who are dead and stop issuing free salaries as pension
