Railways mulling in-house magazine for passengers

New Delhi, Nov 11 (PTI) Passengers getting bored during train journeys will now have something to look forward to as Indian Railways is considering launching an in-house magazine to keep them entertained.

“The magazine will have stories that have something for everyone and devote space for vital railway information for the benefit of all,” said sources in Railways.

The plan is at the drawing board stage but they expressed confidence that “the project will become a reality soon.”

The plan comes in the backdrop of the Railway Passenger Amenities Committee recommending the PSU behemoth launch its own dedicated television channel broadcasting railway related information besides telecasting programmes related to the tourism sector.

Sources said the in house magazine would be distributed in prestigious trains like Rajdhanis and Shatabdis.

Indications are that Railway will be soon floating a tender inviting bidders for publishing the magazine.
