The Indian Railways has said that it is developing a common digital platform integrating information from all departments as a roadmap for the future for bringing transparency in the system.
As per reports, this will enable the public transporter to save about Rs 60,000 crore. Besides, the entire supply and procurement chain of Railways will be digitised to curb corruption.
Commenting on the issue, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu told the media, "Our entire supply chain is being digitised. Payment will be made electronically and procurement will also be made electronically. It will curb corruption."
"We are also doing ERP - enterprise resource planning - a complete digitisation process. All rail operations will be online. It aims to save about Rs 60,000 crore, according to industry estimates," he added.
"Vision for Railways is to address those issues for which Railways is suffering today. Complete digitisation will enable operation can be managed from one place," he further said.
