Unlike other experts in the past, Pitroda haven’t discussed about increasing railway fares and why railway is running in loss from the last eight years. But the stress was on: the Railways should modernize rapidly; invest more in safety; raise productivity; leverage advanced technology; and revamp its organizational structure to improve its contribution to economy.

Railways other plan is to upgrade 40% of the tracks that carry 80% of traffic. It would help the trains to carry heavier goods & passengers. The committee is also in a need to improve the surcharge of the passenger fares later on.
