The extensive connectivity it provides across the nation serves as a testament to India’s rich diversity. She commended the ongoing efforts by Indian Railways to enhance its services, providing memorable experiences to travelers and offering a glimpse into India’s multifaceted culture, both to its citizens and international visitors.

Railway Infrastructure and Economic Growth:

The President emphasized the substantial impact of railway infrastructure development on India’s socio-economic growth. She lauded the ‘Amrit Bharat Station scheme,’ which focuses on revamping railway stations using green technology and incorporating world-class amenities. This people-centric initiative is poised to boost tourism activities and foster economic progress. President Murmu expressed her confidence in the young officers’ potential to contribute significantly to the modernization of Indian Railways and the advancement of the nation.

Acquiring Skills and Collaborative Efforts:

President Murmu advised the officers to acquire the necessary skills, knowledge, and expertise within the broader transport ecosystem. She stressed the importance of studying and adopting best practices, not only from within the country but also from other nations. In line with the vision of an Atma Nirbhar (self-reliant) and developed nation, she emphasized the need for a comprehensive, multi-modal transport system, integrating rail, road, air, and water transportation. Collaboration between Indian Railways and other departments was encouraged to achieve this holistic goal.
