DK Mittal Committee on Indian Railways

The High Level Committee headed by DK Mittal submitted its report on 26 December 2014. This committee had made large number of recommendations for short term and medium/ long term action plan relating to improving revenue generation from passenger and freight operations, asset monetization and resource mobilization, and increasing efficiency.  Many of the recommendations require changes in operational systems and procedures, large investments in facilities and infrastructure, and organizational changes over a long time frame. Such recommendations as are considered feasible for immediate implementation have been taken into account for framing the Railway Budget for the financial year 2015-16.
