‘Everyone will get confirmed railway ticket by 2020’

 Pointing out that Indian Railways is trying hard to provide world class facilities to passengers, Union Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu is confident about providing confirmed tickets to all pasengers by 2020. 

 
In an interview with ‘ETV’ News head Jagdeesh Chandra, the railway minister said he is trying his best to improve services of Indian Railways.
 
He expressed hope that supply and demand of tickets in railways will be met by 2020, even though it is challenging work considering country's population and increasing dependence on railways. 
 
Technologies will be used as much as possible in the coming days to make the Rail Communication systematic, he added. 
 
During the conversation, he also expressed his views on proposed bullet train service between Mumbai and Ahmedabad and said that after implementation, it will completely change the scenario. 
 
The bullet train is equipped with best technologies of the world, for which an agreement has been done with Japan, said Prabhu.
