The reputation of Indian Railways is improving with enhanced safety, cleanliness and better facilities apart from increased speed of different trains, the Prime Minister said.

“The needs of the 21st century India can’t be fulfilled through the ways of the 20th century. That is why Railways needed reforms through a new approach. We worked to develop Railways not only as a service but as an asset, the result of which can be clearly seen today,” Modi said after inaugurating the Rs 790-crore five-star hotel project atop the redeveloped Gandhinagar station.“The needs of the 21st century India can’t be fulfilled through the ways of the 20th century.
