In line with the ‘Digital India’, a knowledge portal for dissemination of detailed information on Indian Railways was launched today by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu.

Indian Railway Knowledge Portal which is accessible at (www.kportal.indianrailways.gov.in), is an initiative of the National Academy of Indian Railways and has aggregated most of the available knowledge about Indian Railways at one location by linking websites, documents for dissemination of knowledge on the public transporter.

“Globally it is accepted that we live in a knowledge economy which is driven by knowledge. No sector today can be away from the knowledge resources,” Prabhu said.

He also pointed out that it is desirable that the knowledge about Railway systems does not remain confined to a few select, but all the enthusiasts, researchers, academicians.

He further said that we need to share best practises and innovations. This portal will be a comprehensive holistic platform as a ‘one stop arrangement’ for everyone interested in Indian Railways in particular and Railways in general.

It has e-access to existing libraries of Railways, and all the libraries are being clustered to have a single interface through e-Granthalaya by NIC.

The Knowledge Portal Home Page also gives a brief of all the social media activities of the Indian Railway sites.

Besides the portal has web pages on fan clubs, heritage, and rail museums across the world.
