The Major IR Happenings I have witnessed on IRI being mentioned without logging in the site from the past few days after Mr. Suresh Prabhu took charge as the Union Railways Minister of India :-
1) Remodeling / Route Relay Interlocking works on Major Station Yards of cities like Kanpur-Juhi Yard, Varanasi Yard and Agra Yard.
2) Consideration of Track Doubling on KR.

3) Speeding up of works on sections like Bhaupur (Kanpur) - Meerut of the EDFC while it's construction takes a hit in Bihar near Sasaram Jn.
4) Upgradation of Major routes in Uttar Pradesh like BSB-RBL-LKO, LKO-GD and BSB-SLN-LKO in terms of track doubling and electrification.
5) Heading towards 100% FDI Schemes in IR.
6) Steps being taken towards serving good food and services in trains.
7) Upgradation of Bilaspur - Nagpur Route tracks to 130 Kmph for trains like Rajdhanis.
8) Idea to install Bio-Toilets in all ER Trains within the next 3-4 years.
9) Delaying of the Gatimaan Express launch.
10) Planning of Chair Car Coaches in overnight trains.
11) Responsibility of RPF/GRP regarding passengers' luggage.
12) Reduction of unmanned LC Gates and other infrastructure works.
13) Appointing DRMs and GMs on vacant posts for decentralization of IR
14) Free Feasibility Study by China regarding Madras (Chennai) - New Delhi Route to run Bullet Trains.
Reforms may take place to upgrade IR that has been a cash-strapped organization !!!

India has always been skeptical about any big reform project regarding the Indian Railways.
1) During the 1830s, the Colonial British Govt of India was skeptical about IR giving profits in a nation thought to be of bullock carts and snake charmers -> Today we have the world's largest railway organization under a single management called the Ministry of Railways.
During the 1960s, many IR members thought Rajdhani Express to be a Rich Man's chariot and were skeptical to run it -> Today Rajdhani trains are reflecting 100% success record.
3) During 2008-09 many people like Mr. Lalu were skeptical about running Duronto Trains -> Today IR is running Durontos successfully on congested routes and the loss making ones are converted to Shatabdis/JS/IC trains barring the ERS-NZM Duronto.
4) Today many people are skeptical about running Bullet Trains in India just like some senior scientists were skeptical about Mission Mars some years back -> If India can be successful regarding Mission Mars then Bullet Trains are not impractical............ INDIA is a land of many SKEPTICAL or CYNICAL minded people !!!!
