IBN 7‘s ‘Hindustan ki Kasam’ explores Mumbai’s local trains

MUMBAI: IBN 7’s ‘Hindustan ki Kasam’ will be in Mumbai this week discussing the city’s distinctive suburban train system. Covering vast geographical distances to include as much of the local population as possible, this network is the principle mode of mass public transport in the city and one of the oldest in Asia.

Keeping in mind the Mumbaikars absolute dependence on these trains for their daily commute, the programme’s team will bring together people and experts to deliberate on issues such as congestion, women’s compartment’s, security, general conditions, etc.

Two zonal wings of the Indian railways operate the Mumbai Suburban Railway System: the Western Railways and the Central Railways. Renowned for possessing the highest passenger density of any urban railway system in the world, this lifeline of the city carries a record 65-lakh passengers daily.

Despite such heavy commuter traffic, the infrastructure surrounding the railways is insufficient resulting in problems of overcrowding and subsequent fatalities.

“We strongly feel that an issue like the Mumbai local trains deserves attention due to the public’s sheer dependence on it. We believe in inclusive journalism and our aim has always been to air shows, which involve the common man.

This show will provide the people a platform to voice their opinions on subjects, which affect their daily lives. We are confident that the outcome of such a series will put pressure on the concerned authorities to bring about positive changes regarding the same.” added, Ashutosh, Managing Editor, IBN 7.

Watch "Hindustan Ki Kasam" from Monday to Sunday at 6:30 pm only on IBN 7.
