Making Indian Railways the preferred freight carrier in India, reducing the operational cost, improving non-tariff revenue and increasing the investment in rail infrastructure substantially are among the other issues to be taken up during the event.

It is a massive exercise being undertaken for the first time in railways which is organising the three-day camp involving all employees across the hierarchy, said a senior Railway Ministry official involved with the project.
