With the Vision 2020, a lot of reforms are being undertaken to improve the stability of the railway sector and retain the image of being one of the premier organizations in the country. Focus will be on upgrading the tracks, signalling, implementing safety parameters and electrification system on the railway tracks so as to improve punctuality, speed and safety of the trains.
