Railways invites private players to sell tickets

NEW DELHI: Railways has invited private players to sell tickets of both reserved and unreserved category, inviting ire of employee unions.

The unions are crying foul and opposing the move as it has come after the new dispensation decided to outsource cleaning of 50 major stations and decided to deploy ‘Gate Mitras’ (counselors) hired by private agencies at unmanned level crossings instead of posting trackmen.

The unions have termed these moves as “back-door” privatization of railway operations. More info
