GHAZIABAD, UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA (RECENT) (REUTERS) VARIOUS OF TRAINS AT GHAZIABAD RAILWAY STATION ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF NEW DELHI VARIOUS OF LABOURERS LIFTING AND LOADING SACKS OF CEMENT SACKS OF CEMENT IRON CABLES AND CEMENT SACKS LYING IN RAILWAY YARDS TRUCK LOADED WITH CEMENT SACKS DRIVING AWAY NEW DELHI, INDIA (RECENT) (REUTERS) CHIEF SPOKESMAN OF INDIAN RAILWAYS, ANIL SAXENA, WORKING ON HIS DESK (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHIEF SPOKESMAN OF INDIAN RAILWAYS, ANIL SAXENA, SAYING: "Railway sector, over the years, we have lost a lot of revenue to the road sector. So, now we have to bring back that share of traffic to railway sector more and we have to work harder for that. Over the years we did not rationalise our freight tariff and gradually the traffic shifted away from us. So, we went in for massive rationalisation of freight traffic." TRUCKS PARKED AT ONE OF NEW DELHI'S WHOLESALE FRUIT AND VEGETABLE MARKET LABOURERS SIGNALLING TO A TRUCK DRIVING INSIDE THE WHOLESALE MARKET TRAFFIC AND PEOPLE INSIDE THE MARKET'S PARKING AREA VARIOUS OF THE WHOLESALE MARKET (SOUNDBITE) (Hindi) A TOMATO DEALER FROM NEW DELHI'S OKHLA WHOLESALE MARKET, ROHIT KUMAR, SAYING: "There are so many problems with the railways. First one has to face problems in loading and unloading at their yard then we have to once again re-load and bring the goods here. Till that time the goods keep lying there, one has to run from one place to another, one person to another with papers and then one has to pay them money. Which (railway) official releases goods without taking money? Here we get our goods fresh, sell them and relax." TRADER CHECKING GOODS AT THE TRUCK UNLOADING POINT (SOUNDBITE) (Hindi) ANOTHER TRADER FROM THE WHOLESALE MARKET OF OKHLA, BADLE RAM YADAV, SAYING: "Those who do try to get their goods from railways say there are several problems. The trains don't arrive on time, the goods don't reach on time and then they cannot meet the demands of the market." CARGO TRAIN WHEELS OF CARGO TRAIN LABOURERS PULLING A HANDCART PAST THE RAILWAY TRACKS VARIOUS OF WORKERS RESTING UNDERNEATH A RAILWAY WAGON DIRECTOR OF INFRASTRUCTURE AND GOVERNMENT SERVICES AT INTERNATIONAL CONSULTANCY FIRM KPMG, RAJAJI MESHRAM, SITTING (SOUNDBITE) (English) DIRECTOR OF INFRASTRUCTURE AND GOVERNMENT SERVICES AT INTERNATIONAL CONSULTANCY FIRM KPMG, RAJAJI MESHRAM, SAYING: "(Railways) cannot continue to behave like a monopolistic organisation, they have to have a customer focus. They have to go out to the customer and ask the customer what do you want, instead of saying that I have got a network, if you want connectivity, come to my office and I will give you the connectivity. So that mindset change definitely has to happen. Second is the focus on commodities - so if railways has traditionally always relied on coal or cement or fertilizer or iron ore, now the basket will have to change, that is there. And the last problem that I was saying was that on the passenger side, there are reforms that have been put in place, it cannot indefinitely keep footing the bill for the subsidy."
