Successive governments in India have slyly and stealthily been doing step by step privatisation of the Indian Railways. Privatisation of British Rail has often been cited to justify privatisation moves in our country. The Bibek Debroy Committee recommended that Indian Railways should follow the privatisation model of Britain. It said, "The key lesson from the UK is to retain the rail-track and infrastructure as a publicly-owned monopoly, while opening up rolling stock operations for passengers and freight to the private sector." This Committee conveniently did not state that privatisation of British Rail has not delivered the promised results to its users and that now due to their pressure and that of the workers, has been forced to partially renationalise certain routes.
