Beschreibung:

Story of Indian Railways is the story of Indian`s macro-economics growth and social-economic transformation over a period of almost a century-and-a-half. This book, with the help of over two hundred authentic tables, charts, graphs, etc., covers almost all aspects of development and growth of Indian Railways during the last 40 years. The author, through the valuable data, information and analysis in this book, provides the reader not only with a vivid panorama of railways` performance over the four decades after India`s independence but also offers a fascinating study on the cost affectiveness of the present structure of rail transport, with interesting conclusions. Besides, this study provides good material for fresh thinking on the railways for making transport system efficient and cost-beneficial from the users` point of view also. The contents, among others, include : ? Key statistics - virtually on all relevant aspects of growth and development of Indian Railways ? Performance and other relevant comparisons with railway systems of 48 other countries including USA, USSR, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan, Australia etc. and also the developing countries of the third world ? Comparisons with road transport system ? Development through the five-year Plans ? Study and statistics of investment, inputs, working results, freight traffic, passenger traffic, etc. ? Profitability aspects of Indian Railways ? Setting up of Inland Transport Corporation ? Tariff changes and rationalisation of tariff structure ? Rationalisation of goods terminals and sidings ? Recommendations of steering committee for planning and development ? Electrification programmes ? Strategies and programmes for future : 1990-2000 ? Transport pricing - various aspects including subsidy, and development needs ? Creating additional capacities; carrying of bulk commodities, revenue for bulk commodities, multipurpose wagons for freight traffic, etc. ? High-powered locomotives ? Cross subsidisation of traffic ? Economy in working expenses ? Policy relating to slow-moving passenger trains ? Uneconomic branch lines ? Passenger amenities ? Safety of rail travel ? Covered wagons for food and other vulnerable items ? Additional incentives for train-load movements ? Losses on "small" traffic ? Question of amalgamation of "small" and parcel rates ? Social burdens on Indian Railways. ? Exhaustive bibliography in four parts also includes Doctoral Dissertations on Indian Railways, and Transport as such, from 1857 to 1986 as submitted in various Indian Universities. I recommend this useful book to every railway man in India and abroad. Rail users, transport economists, Planners, students pursuing courses in transport, financiers and bankers would find the book extremely useful as a source of information and for decision making. The study of the volume will help in a better understanding of Indian Railways. C.M. Khosla Member Traffic, Railway Board and Ex-Officio Secretary to Government of India Ministry of Railways The data included in this volume is comprehensive and there are nearly 150 statistical statements which present a panoramic view of the growth of the Indian Railway system year by year from 1950 to date. The graphs, bar charts and pie charts included in the volume give a graphic account of the growth of the Indian Railway system making it easy to appreciate and assimilate the various data. The observations and inferences in the book would, I am certain, provide a stimulating reading for those who are in the profession and others who are serious students of transport economics, provoking them to delve deep into the fascinating world of railways in general and Indian Railways in Particular.
