Now, two aviation companies SpiceJet and IndiGo are all set to start train operations. Apart from this, some of the e-commerce giants in the hospitality industry, especially MakeMyTrip have also shown interest for the same. 
to the Zee Business TV sources in the Ministry of Railways, some private airline companies of big repute have shown interest in train operations. Asked about the name of the aviation companies the source further revealed that SpiceJet and IndiGo are the two private airline companies who have shown interest in train operations. The source said that the Indian Railways has received inquiry in regard to Indian Railways privatisation.

In fact, some travel portals have also shown interest in railway operations. On the condition of anonymity, a senior Indian Railways officer posted at the Ministry of Railways said that some travel portals of big repute want to join Indian Railways as private players. He only named MakeMyTrip though. 
Receiving such a rave response from the private players, the Indian Railways is at Cloud-9. They have now started to find out the possible routes where private firms operated trains can be introduced. The railway official said that the Indian Railways has zeroed on 150 train routes for private operators. In long route trains, there are 9 such train routes, which include Delhi-Mumbai, Delhi-Chennai, Delhi-Howrah which can be operated by private players in the near future.
The Indian Railways is doing a trial of eight months, in which it gave IRCTC to run Tejas Express on Lucknow-Delhi route. The IRCTC began its train operations on 4th October successfully. After 8-10 months, private players would be asked to bid for their preferred train route for operations.

Soon, you could be boarding a train operated by carriers like IndiGo and SpiceJet. The Indian Railways' plan to rope in private players to run its trains has drawn the attention of few airlines as well as travel portal MakeMyTrip, said sources in the Ministry of Railways.
Two big players from the catering sector have also shown interest, said the highly placed sources. Under this public-private partnership (PPP) model, railways remains the owner of the train, while an outsider takes care of ticketing, catering and cleaning.
The overwhelming response from the biggies has
prompted the rail ministry to put the plan on the fast track. It will soon finalise the terms and conditions for private players to operate the trains before calling for bids. "This has been conveyed to the interested parties," said a source.
The railways last week launched the country's first 'private' train – the Delhi-Lucknow Tejas Express – in partnership with its catering arm IRCTC.
The ministry has already indicated that 150 trains will be operated through the PPP model in the next four to five years. Some these trains will run from Mumbai to places like Delhi, Ahmedabad, Aurangabad and Madgaon.

Ever since India’s 1st private train: Tejas Express, has been flagged off, a new era of Railways has dawned in India, wherein non Indian Railways trains, run by private players will become the norm.
Already more than 50 routes have been finalised for the private train routes, and now, some interesting details are emerging regarding the companies which can soon run such
private trains.
Note here, that Tejas Express, which is India’s 1st private train, is being managed and run by IRCTC, which is a subsidiary of Indian Railways focussing on catering, ticketing and sale of water bottles.
IRCTC has just launched their IPO, which has broken several records in stock market.
MakeMyTrip, SpiceJet, Indigo Will Run Private Trains
Some of the biggest names in the travel industry have now come out, and pitching for their participating in running private trains.
MakeMyTrip, India’s biggest online ticketing platform has shown keen interest in jumping into this niche, which will perfectly compliment their existing business model.
Spicejet and Indigo, which are currently India’s #2 and #1 airline carrrier in India, have also shown interesting in running private trains.
More than 150 private trains will be running on the tracks of Indian Railways very soon, and more and more private players need to be involved.
Indian Railways Considering Proposals
As per the reports coming in, Indian Railways has confirmed that they have received the proposals from MakeMyTrip, Spicejet and Indigo airlines, and they are considering the proposals.
However, another set of reports indicate that now as the first non Indian Railways trains is successfully running (Tejas Express, between Lucknow and Delhi), they will now create a set of terms and conditions for private players.
After that, there will be an open bidding for allocating the routes to the private companies, and then the main operators will be finalised.
How Can Private Firms Make Money Via Indian Railways?
Indian Railways has already announced that private companies running private trains will be able to set their own fares.
And this changes everything.
For some of the busiest routes on which private trains would be allowed are: Delhi – Mumbai, Delhi – Chennai, Delhi Howrah, which are extremely busy, and critical routes.
Private players, if they assure better & timely services, can charge a premium from passengers, and recover their costs.
More details are awaited.

Well, that happened in Telangana with TRTC. 48k employees were sacked. Anyway, to be fair, govt. will offer VRS to non-workers. for IR, the scale would be high.

That i agree with u...but in most of these kind of pvt labour oriented companies give a salary of Rs. 5000 pm and too much work for 12 to 14 hrs a day and that too in Metro cities . So, how can these people survive in metro cities with 5000 salary with this growing level of mehengayi ka jamana. I know many people in Delhi working in small pvt companies with Rs. 5000 salary in Delhi.
Now this unemployment is all over in all sectors be it Real estate, Automobile sector, Manufacturing sector, Power sector, etc all over even Agriculture is down, Shate markets down...everywhere and in this situation running Pvt trains with flexi-fare is a additional burden
on people if this scheme is applied to most trains slowly, with high petrol, diesel, gas prices, with unlimited increase with no price control on Health sector, Airlines sector, private School addmissuon and study costs...and reducing Saving Interest, Post office Interest everywhere. With high unemployment.
But still i also don't support those peoples who don't want to work , lazy peoples. I too have no sympathy for them.

5000 per month is a joke, agreed. But min. wage for unskilled labour like helper, delivery boys etc. is at least 13000. For skilled, like electrician, wireman, plumber, welder, driver etc. it is much higher. At our sugarcane farms, cane cutters demand 1000 per day!
Pvt. trains will stop unauthorized travel, free travel/food/bed rolls for IR employees and their families. Pvt. trains will also make travellers feel safer without unauthorized vendors and beggars.

Rs 5000 pm salary is a reality man not a joke.....even in metro cities like Delhi, kolkata many persons still earn Rs. 5000 pm salary.
What about Concessions for Cancer patients, Handicapped persons, and other critical ailments patients who travel for treatments? What about Sr. Citizens Concessions?
Think of them too sir...... Sir i request you don't be merciless.
I agree
Railway staffs Concessions/ free travel should be stopped ...but Concessions for Patients, Handicapped persons, Sr. Citizens should be there , these Concessions should not be removed at all.

Waste of public money, instead they should have given it a LHB rake. This whole utkrist scheme is a big scam, contractors and railway officials r just using this scheme to make money. Contracts worth crores of rupees r being given to upgrade old rakes but what the passenger is getting in return is just a old rake having some weird livery, nothing else.
