 The ministry of railways has come up with National Rail Plan, 2030 to provide long term perspective to plan for augmenting the railway network.

In order to give a platform to concerned stakeholders to have their suggestions on modernisation and rapid development of the railways, a website (http://www.nationalrailplan.in) was unveiled by railway minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu on Thursday.
 
Prabhu said the railways needs to form a comprehensive plan about its work in the coming 10-20 years. He said that after receiving ideas and suggestions, railways will put together all the requirements from the different stakeholders. 
 
“Railways does not want to beat the other modes of transport by competing, but wants to work by complementing,” the minister said.
 
The officials said that the portal has been developed for all stakeholders to give their inputs as railways’ planning cannot be done in isolation.
 
“In order to provide long term perspective to plan for augmenting the railway network, ministry of railways has decided to develop National Rail Plan (NRP 2030) in consultation with several state governments, public representatives and other relevant central ministries. NRP-2030 will endeavour to harmonise and integrate the rail network with other modes of transport and create synergy for achieving seamless multi modal transportation network across the country,” a press release stated.
 
The statement added that it will also achieve the prime minister’s vision of integrated planning and cost optimization of the transportation network.
