The industrial ecosystem is market driven and responds to various market forces. In the Indian context, vendor and suppliers of the railways industry are dependent solely on the railways and imposes an additional responsibility on them to guide the industry with clarity and certainty towards achievement of the common goals. Growth and development of the railways and its associated industries are also symbiotic.
Delving on these issues, this knowledge paper, published by CII and EY studies the global best practices in railways planning and industry coordination. These global and industry insights need to be attuned to the Indian conditions.
