Ratan Tata to head Indian Railways’ Kaya Kalp council


NEW DELHI: Railway minister Suresh Prabhu has set up two committees in line with the promises made in his maiden rail budget last month, including Innovation Council ‘Kaya Kalp’ headed by former Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata to suggest ways to turn around the ailing organisation.

The other committee, under former DIPP secretary Ajay Shankar, has been set up to revamp ministry’s PPP (public private partnership) cell to get private investment.

The PPP Cell is critical for the growth of Indian railways since getting funds for new projects has become a challenge. Shankar had earlier worked with Prabhu in power ministry as joint secretary and later additional secretary. More info
