    hi all,

    This railway budget is lalu's fifth railway budget....some of the highlights....(though there were too many protests on the new stations and trains allotted..

    lots of new trains...(and you had to see lalu reading the names of places....RantBig LaughBig Laugh even the speaker was laughing....)

    Again railways is in the green...good profits.
    50 percent concession to aids patients
    50 percent concession to senior woman citizen earlier it was 30.
    new coaches in rajdhani and satabdhi.
    new toilets...(laloo ji i think this should be the highest priority...i think he has to travel once/twice as aam janta to have the experience.:idea)
    Stainless steel coaches from FY10 likely to benefit steel companies .... JSW Steel, Jindal Stainless, Tata Steel, Texmaco..many more..(let us keep a watch??)..
    more spending on infrastructure
    Container Corporations ( CONCOR ) to set up 8 Depots-- check out container corp at the sensex..
    5 pc reservation for women in railway jobs
    Rlys to be linked by call centres by 2009Online control of trains within 2 years :hiya
    Planning smart card based ticket system Connectivity to Mundra likely to benefit Mundra SEZ, Tata power, Reliance Energy. (keep watch on mundra guys lot of activities in that area..)
    CCTV, metal detectors to be installed in all stations.
    CFL`s to be used in order to encourage power saving
    Coach factory to be set up in Kerala, Kerala Government has given 1000 acres land for its development
    Railways to provide escalators at 50% of the railway stationsBow
    Sleeper fare cut upto 5% across the board, Re 1 discount to all fares upto Rs 150
    AC I fares to cut by 7%, AC II by 4% and AC III by 3%

    Good summary , thx Shanvy.

    I read in the papers today a statement by Lalloo that railways is like the cow, if you milk it too much, it will affect it, so milk it with limitation....!!!


    Wow! what an analogy to the cow, but what else can you expect, considering the fact that its coming for Lalloo ??? !!!

    Deepi,

    It is a very mediocre budget, we have come to expect from him.
