Urban Regeneration
The Indian Railways' contribution to national integration is unparalleled. It has knit India together by connecting all the regions, and almost all the states, in a single transport network. It has always played a unique role in meeting the transportation needs of the common man, while simultaneously serving as a critical infrastructure facilitator for the carriage of goods. In the coming decade, it will continue to keep its service focus on the underprivileged and the poor, even as it expands its services for the more fortunate.

The Indian Railways has been playing this role in the past, but not fully.
