Under the power purchase agreement, the Indian railway have come up with this new policy of setting the solar panels on the rooftop of the railway stations. This will help the Indian railways in reducing the cost of the power. This new system will replace the existing fossil fuels which in turn reduce the consumption of the this fuels.
Insurance Policy for Passengers: The Indian Railways is making some good moves to make passengers happy. It is planning to provide some insurance policies to the passengers. In case of any train accidents, this insurance policy will cover the medical treatment of the passengers or the policy will ensure that the passenger will remove money in case of death.
Indian railways is in touch with 7 insurance companies and if the agreement is finalized, then it needs an approval from the government. Passengers have to pay special premium to avail the insurance while purchasing the train ticket.

New Trains: The Indian railways has introduced two new trains Kamakhya-Bhagat Ki Kothi Express and Siliguri-New Coochbehar DEMU.
Whats your stand on the insurance policy? Do you think that the Indian railways have to pay the insurance premium rather than the passengers? I guess that if every passengers buy the premium, then the insurance companies are going to become rich.
