However, the capacity, efficiency and safety are major issues that face the country’s rail sector. Inadequate investment in the railways by the government and private sector has only made the task of bridgingthe investment gap more difficult. Realizing the need to upgrade rail infrastructure, under its long term strategic plan, the Ministry of Railways though DFCCIL has proposed to construct six high capacity corridors along the Golden Qualiteral and its diagonals. In the first phase, the western and the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridors have been approved and taken up.
