This is the first budget for him to announce after being taken charge of railway minister.

Moreover, 8 lakhs crore would be allotted for railway department in next 05 years, he added.

As per my view I am quite satisfied with this Rail Budget. The Railway Minister has tried to appease the common man.
The announcement which would be beneficial for common man are:
1. In order to avert any mis-happening, introduction of fire alert system in coaches.
2. Cameras in ladies coaches.
3. Four months advanced booking.
4. Facility of wheel/roller chair for old persons and ill persons.
5. No any hike in passenger fare.
The things which I dislike in this Rail Budget are:
1. No introduction of any new train.
2. Hike in good trains fare which ultimately hike the inflation.
In general, I would like to thanks to Railway Ministry and Central Government for this rail budget.
What is the use of such budget, if that is not addressing the aspirations of the people since many years. The Railway budget is being hijacked by the concerned Ministers at the helm of affairs to their own state and benefit leaving the long standing demands to peril. In this budget the bifurcated Telangana and AP are the main losers without any sops. What is the use of this budget when new projects are not sanctioned and that too SCR is giving the lion share to the Nation. Down with this budget,
The only aspect which I liked about the Railway Budget, 2015, is that no new trains are introduced. There are many pending projects now. So it is a sensible thing that the Railway Minister did. Many of the facilities he announced are already available but for a very few. Providing bio toilets is a good idea.
The Indian Railways is one department which runs with more than 100% occupancy but yet makes crores of rupees loss every year. This is a point to be addressed immediately but there is no mention about it.
The allocation of funds by the Central Government to the Railways is meager and it is to be seen how the minister is going to implement his programs without additional revenue. The intentions are good and how he is going to do them was not clearly mentioned. The facility of booking food online is good and the point remains is the quality of the food which is not good and hygienic.
