Governance Now 3rd Rail Tech Summit 2022
"Engineering Seamless Transformational strategies to fast-track railway modernization"
Governance Now, the premier publication on public policy and governance from Sri Adhikari Brothers Group is organizing the 3rd edition of Rail Tech Summit 2022 on 16th December 2022 at New Delhi. The Rail Tech summit will discuss the technology infrastructure modernization for the seamless transformation of the Indian Railways. For the railways, the rapid digitalization is marked by the fourth industrial revolution - Railway 4.0. It enhances railway infrastructure, services, systems, signaling, etc. while improving operational efficiency. They are being re-imagined, designed, delivered, and operated using technology, thus changing the face of the Railways.
Indian Railways provide an effective Innovation Ecosystem involving the free flow of technology and information among people, enterprises, and institutions, which is the key to an innovative process. It allows interactions between the actors needed to turn an idea into a process, product, or service to achieve the organization's ultimate objective. Being the nation's Lifeline, IR has been continually making innovations in its Technology, Service, Operations, and Overall System to lead the nation on the path to a modern and ever-progressing future.
Metro rail projects are also being envisaged across many cities over the next ten years. The Government is going to come up with a ‘National Rail Plan’ to enable the country to integrate its rail network with other modes of transport and develop a multi-modal transportation network.A 'New Online Vendor Registration System' has been launched by Research Designs & Standards Organization (RDSO), the research arm of Indian Railways, to have digital and transparent systems and procedures.
Private sector companies are being encouraged to participate in rail projects, which are largely in the public domain. The cabinet approved ‘participative models for rail-connectivity and capacity augmented projects’, which allowed private ownership of some railway lines. Indian manufacturers, under the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ initiative, are being urged to develop an alternative to high-tech machines needed to build high-speed rail speedily for the country’s first high-speed rail corridor connecting Ahmedabad and Mumbai. As part of the National Rail Plan for 2030, Indian Railways is expected to create a future-ready railway system by 2030 to bring down logistics costs and ensure 100% electrification of broad rail routes by December 2023.
