Mumbai: 13 Members of the Parliamentary Standing Committee for Railways visited Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSTM) and inspected the passenger facilities such as automatic ticket vending machines (ATVM) and the ticketing system.
The high demand for railway services in Maharashtra made it a profit state for the Indian Railways, Rajiv Satav said.
The committee will submit a detailed report in Parliament after interaction with senior officials of Western and Central Railway.
“Maharashtra is one of the states that generates most of the revenue for the Indian Railways. We will discuss how to improve the services for commuters in Maharashtra,” said Rajiv Satav, member of the committee.
Satav stressed on asking the railways to select members for the Railway Board based on skill.
“I will also talk about inducting members in the railway board on the basis of merit. This should be considered over experience,” said Satav.
