Introduction of New Trains
Eighty nine new mail/express train services have been announced in the Railway Budget 2011-12. Introduction of new train service is an ongoing process subject to traffic justification, operational feasibility, availability of resources, competing demand, etc. Indian Railways do not introduce new train service on State-wise/Station-wise basis as railway network runs across State boundaries.

Speeding up of trains is a constant endeavour and continuous process on Indian Railways and is dependent on constant optimization of the investments made by way of modernization of technology, high powered locos, modern coaches and better tracks.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways, Shri K.H. Muniyappa in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha yesterday.
