The Indian Railways on Thursday achieved 100 per cent punctuality of trains - the first time that this milestone has been achieved. No trains were delayed among the 201 that run on this day, said the Indian Railways. Indian Railways has said the previous best was 99.54% on June 23 when only one train was delayed. But on July 1, Indian Railways achieved 100% punctuality with the 201 trains.
In a statement, the Indian Railways said, “First time ever in the history of Indian Railways, 100% punctuality of trains achieved with all trains on time. Previous best was 99.54% on 23.06.2020 with one train getting delayed.” Meanwhile, the Railways on Wednesday formally kick started its plans to allow private bodies to operate passenger trains on its network by inviting request for qualifications (RFQ) for participation on 109 pairs of routes through 151 modern trains, the national transporter said. The project would entail a private sector investment of about Rs 30,000 crore.
The railways had recently requested to all passengers to come to the station 90 minutes in advance and not earlier than that to avoid crowding at the premises.
Well, it is definitely a happy surprise to see Indian trains coming on time. What do you have to say on this?
