Rajdhani and Shatabdi Express which serves as the premium trains in India is now going for a makeover.
The Railway Ministry is set to launch “Operation Swarn” to improve the services in the trains.
Rajdhani and Shatabdi Express are one of the train services in India, which was started for the people who can afford more money to luxurious travel.
It was reported that

after years the train lost its essence and the service became worse with each passing year.
The cleanliness and quality of food suffered a lot, which is one of the main reasons that the Indian Railway authority has taken the decision to give the premium trains in India a new look.
According to reports, in the first phase, Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani Express and Mumbai-Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express was selected by the Indian Railway authority to give a revamp, which will start from September 26.
In a statement, a railway authority officer said quoted, “The Railways have decided to launch Operation Swarn (or ‘gold’) to refurbish its services after several complaints by passengers like delay in train arrival, sanitation, and quality of food”.

NEW DELHI: Tata Realty, Shapoorji Pallonji, IL&FS, Reliance Infrastructure, Raheja Group and Essel Infra are among those developers that have evinced interest in modernising and upgrading major Mumbai railway stations at Bandra Terminus, Mumbai Central, Lokmanya Tilak Terminus, Borivali and Thane at an estimated cost of Rs 10,000 crore, a top railway official said. The stations will be awarded under the Swiss challenge method, where proposals are invited online and rivals can offer counter-bids.
The builders will get commercial exploitation rights for railway land for 45 years in lieu of redeveloping and modernising the existing stations.
“The

Mumbai redevelopment projects are high traction ones for private builders as they will be able to access prime real estate and also the combined daily footfall at these stations is upwards of 50 lakh per day, which would make projects viable,” the official said. The successful bidders will be required to raise the stations to world standards by building new platforms, providing lifts and other passenger amenities and also maintaining the premises.
In lieu of this, the railways will allow them to build hotels, malls, cinema halls and shops within the station complex. The Lokmanya Tilak Terminus is the largest in Mumbai with a total area of eight acres whereas Mumbai Central has an area of almost four acres. The bidding process will start in August and the stations awarded in early 2018.
For the Bandra and Borivali stations, prospective bidders have flagged their concerns about relocating the railway quarters, which would cost them almost Rs 150 crore. Other than the Mumbai stations, the one in Pune is also attracting a lot of interest from the big bidders. The estimated area of Pune station is around eight acres.
Railways has engaged EY as consultant for its market outreach programme. Indian Railways plans to redevelop 400 major stations, envisaging a minimum investment of Rs 1 lakh crore.
The Swiss challenge method cuts the longdrawn tendering process currently used by the railways. An expert committee will accept the best proposal and the original proposer will get an opportunity to match it.
The government is taking various steps to increase private sector participation in upgradation and modernisation of Indian Railways.
Niti Aayog, the government’s think tank, has suggested measures such as flexible design and lease payment norms to ensure wider private sector participation in station redevelopment. It recommended that the station redevelopment get infrastructure project status, enabling easy and economical borrowing from banks.

Later this month, Indian Railways will propose reducing the minimum travel time of the Delhi-Mumbai and Delhi-Howrah lines from 17 hours to 12.
The plan would make each line the fastest in India, running at top speeds of 200 kilometres per hour. The Gatimaan, which runs from Delhi to Agra, is currently number one with a maximum speed of 160 km/h.
The average speed of many Indian trains is slower by over 100 km/h. According to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity, the premier Rajdhani trains currently average around 75 km/h;
...

the prevalent Express and Mail trains trundle along at 52 km/h; and freight trains are not even half as fast as that, averaging only 22 km/h.
Significantly, the proposal of the new plan is taking the official form of a cabinet note. In the past, hundreds of projects have been announced in railway budget speeches but have languished without approval by the cabinet. An estimated 394 rail projects worth nearly five lakh crore are pending.
According to Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu, implementation of the new plan will begin in January 2018 and take two to three years. An official who was not authorized to speak to the media reckoned that the project will cost Rs 18,163 crore. The Railways will focus on improving the electrical systems that direct trains and on civil engineering projects such as the lifting of tracks and the construction of new fences.
Ultimately, the government hopes to run faster trains throughout the ‘Golden Quadrilateral’, which also includes the Delhi-Chennai and Mumbai-Kolkata lines.
Of the 9,100 kilometers on the Golden Quadrilateral, the tracks along 6,400 kilometers (70% of the total) do not have the capacity to run trains at 130 km/h. Speed restrictions are in effect at 730 locations. These stretches have 2,736 level crossings. “We are working at eliminating these obstacles,” said a ministry official .
Britain has had trains going 200 km/h since 1976, and France is expecting this summer to start running trains that hit and go above 300 km/h. The fastest commercial train in the world, the Shanghai Maglev, tops out at 430km/h. Despite the considerable size and importance of the railways in India, they have been unable to keep up with the standards set by some other Asian nations and by Europe.
