Indian Railways is poised to become the world’s biggest potential market for the introduction of modern state-of-the-art technologies and solutions for optimally harnessing the existing resources and deploying new technology solutions. Several domestic and foreign companies are now looking to invest in Indian rail projects. In the next five years, the Indian railway market will be the 3rd largest, accounting for 10 per cent of the global market.
The investments by the Government in Railways in 2015-16 were double the average investment over the past five years and announced capital expenditure for 2016-17 at Rs 121,000 crore (US$ 17.94 billion), which will be implemented through joint ventures with states and developing new frameworks for Public-private partnership. The Government is focusing on its massive US$ 140 billion investment plan to modernize the railways and improve safety, performance and passenger amenities. The Govt. has allowed 100 per cent FDI in railway infrastructure, barring operations, via the automatic route.
Ministry of Railways have signed MOUs with number of countries in different areas of modernization of Railways.   The Railways have finalized a policy to set up solar power plants on rooftops of railway premises, which will help to reduce dependence on fossil fuels by generating electricity from solar panels. The Government also plans to give a digital push to the India Railways by introducing bar-coded tickets; Global Positioning System based information systems inside coaches, Information Technology integration of all facilities dealing with ticketing issues, Wi-Fi facilities at the stations, super-fast long-route train service for unreserved passengers among other developments, which will help to increase the passenger traffic. Considering the scale of its massive network, Indian Railways offers huge investment and business opportunities in its different segments.
