The Indian Railways has prepared the National Rail Scheme for India -2030, through which the Indian Railway system will be prepared to meet the future needs by the year 2030.

In recent years, Indian Railways have established new records in many fields. From premium train services offering flight-like facilities to building separate corridors for freight trains and state-of-the-art stations along the lines of the airport to experience tours in VistaDome coaches…. Railways have achieved many successes.

This sequence of the railway to create records is going on continuously. Recently, Vasuki, a 3.5 km long 295-coach train with five engines, was successfully operated. Now, in the coming few years, Railways is preparing to achieve more major successes. This is reflected in the budget presented on Monday.
