This decision is a step in the direction of our resolution to provide world-class railway services, this will make the railways better and contribute more to the development of the country. On 6 December, the Delhi High Court sought response from the Center on a petition seeking to maintain the highest standards of safety and security measures at all railway stations across the country. In the last month i.e. in November itself, the Ministry of Railways claimed that the railway tracks are being modernized to improve safety.
