Trains touched an all-time high in punctuality last year

Despite problems due to faulty rakes, the Western Railway punctuality touched an all time high in 2008-2009. According to the railway sources, the punctuality of trains was 100 per cent on 21 days.
However, at present the punctuality of WR trains is 97 per cent. The Central Railway too has not been lagging behind when it comes to punctuality. It recorded 100 per cent punctuality for the first time on June 15 and 17 this year, claimed CR officials.
While the average of punctuality in WR is between 96 and 97 percent, in CR it is around 95 per cent.
Shyam Sunder Gupta, Chief Public Relations officer, WR, said, “There are various factors which affect the punctuality. This year, the faulty rakes were one of the major factors. Besides, there were some operational and technical reasons like signal failure, breakage of OHE wires, accidents during line crossing, trespassing and roof travelling.”
Sitting with a box of centuries old detonator & fugee, The Indian Railway Board is under the illusion that their train system are so perfect that improvement cannot even be thought of.
A lot of defect need to be removed from railway system and action from Railway Board New Delhi Required.
