Thirteen members of the Parliamentary Standing Committee for Railways visited Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSTM) on Wednesday and inspected passenger facilities such as automatic ticket vending machines (ATVM) and the ticketing system.
Rajiv Satav, member of the committee said that the high demand for railway services in Maharashtra made it a profit state for the Indian Railways. “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,” he said.
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.
The members also inspected the ticketing system.
The committee will submit a detailed report in Parliament after interaction with senior officials of Western and Central Railway.
