Rail Radio Service on trains to be supported by commercial advertisers

NEW DELHI: Installation of entertainment through Public Address systems in trains will be operated by selected licensees, through commercial advertisements

As a result, Minister of State for Railways Rajen Gohain said this will not involve any expense.

The train-borne services are being provided as announced by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu in the Railway Budget 2016-17.

However, luxury trains such as the Shatabdi have been playing pre-recorded music in trains for the past few years on the public address system.
