An initiative of Indian Railways towards transforming India
Indian Railways, with its vast network and presence across the length and breadth of the country, has always been at the forefront to serve the society. Inspired by the vision of Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi for a New India by 2022, Railways is taking various initiatives for upgrading its infrastructure, technology, hygiene among host of other things for an enhanced passenger experience.
Railways has identified opportunities in areas wherein corporate collaborations can be fostered which can positively impact the entire ecosystem under Railways.
These collaborations can be leveraged for the welfare of large number of people not limited to passengers but the entire community living around more than 8,700 stations across the country belonging to different *categories. The collaboration with Indian Railways will help corporates in utilising CSR Funds with certainty of impact for every rupee spent. The initiatives identified by Railways for funding through CSR Funds are covered by the Companies (CSR Policy) Rules, 2014 published by Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
