    Here are some improvements in Indian railways to look forward to, that would make travel easier for passengers across the country :

    - To strengthen security on trains, Indian Railways is expediting the process of installing CCTV surveillance cameras in 20,000 coaches.

    - Indian Railways is bringing on board popular fast food chains Pizza Hut and KFC to deliver pre-ordered meals to passengers.

    - Double decker express trains to augment seat availability in the high-demand routes.

    - Every row of seats will be provided with bottle holders, push back seats, windscreens and also charging socket.

    - Keeping in mind the convenience of ladies and senior citizens, ergonomically designed wooden ladders have been incorporated in steps form instead of earlier metal ladders to climb up the upper berth.

    - A more vibrant and pleasing color scheme has been chosen for the walls. Long lasting anti graffiti PU light blue and cream paint has been extensively used to facilitate easy cleaning of the coach.

    - The Indian Railways have been linking remote parts of the country and have championed geographically difficult terrains in order to ensure connectivity. One such example is that of the recently opened 11-km-long tunnel across the treacherous Pir Panjal mountain range on the Banihal-Qazigund railway line in Jammu and Kashmir. It is the longest such transportation passage in India and second longest in Asia.

    - To fulfil its commitment of providing a hygienic environment to passengers, the Indian Railways have expedited the work of fitting bio-toilets in train coaches.

    - Anubhuti - first class coaches - plush upholstery, designer toilets, diffused lighting, better ergonomics, LCD screens, personalized pantry - welcome to the world of 'Anubhuti' , an ambitious initiative by the railways to target the fast-growing affluent class by offering comforts and amenities never experienced before on Indian tracks.

    - Wifi facility in all trains.
