Transportation in India has always been a matter of discussion considering the huge population. To transport people from a particular destination to other place be it travelling locally or from a state to another state, it requires a planned and robust infrastructure. Indian Railways is one of the examples that must be appreciated for its infrastructure and management for transporting such a huge population to India’s different locations.
