A large number of rail accidents in recent times have forced the Central government to prioritize passenger safety. For the first time, the Finance Ministry may announce a special fund of Rs 20,000 crore for rail safety in the budget due on February 1. Replacement of old tracks and conventional coaches with advanced LHB coaches will be the focus this year.
