During the general elections campaign in 2013-14 Narendra Modi has raised the issue of pathetic conditions in India’s rail network and vowed to modernized it if he elected as the prime minister. Now since last 3 years he is at the helm of affairs but the condition of Indian railway has not shown much improvement. The recent report of CAG ( Comptroller and Auditor General of India) on the condition of railway tells us why railway is not exactly on track. As per the CAG report in 2017 the catering and clothing provided for the passengers is extremely poor. The food that railway serve is not fit for human consumption. The trains are running late and infrastructure suffer from poor hygiene conditions.
Interestingly after swearing-in as prime minister of India Modi put Suresh Prabhu, know for his efficiency and honesty, in-charge of Railway ministry. But despite best of his efforts Suresh Prabhu failed to tackle the issue of safety of passengers in the railway. Suresh Prabhu was also unable to break the nexus between corrupt railway officers and contractors who were milking this institution since decades. During his tenure 259 peoples were killed and 973 injured in 28 major train accidents. The deaths tolls from derailments in 2016-17 was highest in last one decade. Modi government failed to allocate requisite funds for the railway passengers safety and to fill the 1.42 lakh vacant post in the railway.
Now the horoscope of Indian railway and the foundation chart of country shows that there will be massive changes in the railway in next few years which might involve the entry of private companies in this sector. Astrologically the privatization of Indian railway and Indian airlines looks possible in next few months. The maha dasha of 3rd lord Moon in the foundation chart of India and the anter dasha of Rahu placed in the ascendant is an indication of the entry of new technology in the area of public transport.
We will come to the foundation chart of India later but first see the horoscope of Indian railway given below. I got this chart from my astrologer friend Mr.Sunil Dutt who noted the time of the inauguration of India’s first passenger train from the website of BBC.
Possible Horoscope of Indian Railway
16 April 1853, 15:30 Mumbai
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Jupiter 2 years 0 months 18 days
The horoscope of Indian railway given above is cast for the time when the first passenger train was started between Bombay and Thane on 16 April 1853. This time could be taken to see the future of passenger trains services in Indian railway on astrological basis. The current dasha is of Ketu-Mercury from June 2017 to March 2018. The debliteated Mercury in the 8th house is showing big changes in the railway system. The ministry is now headed by Piyush Goyal who took the charge from Suresh Prabhu on the 3rd of September last month. Earlier Piyush Goyal’s work in the ministry of power was highly appreciated.
Now the coming maha dasha of Venus from March 2018 shows a promise of tremendous improvements in the passenger services of railway. Venus is Vargottama 10th lord here in its sign of exaltation. The dasha of Venus is likely to introduce privet sector companies in many passenger services like catering, safety, cleanliness etc. We may soon find that some railway routs could be handed over to private companies for running passenger trains. There will be introduction of glamour and new technology in the railway. Prime Minister Modi has already inaugurated India’s first high speed rail project ‘Bullet Train’ at Ahmadabad-Mumbai-Ahmadabad route. Many new high speed and semi high speed train projects will be started after March 2018.
However, the Hindu New Year horoscope of 2018 shows that there will be lots of dangerous train, road and air accident are going to take place which will shock the nation. Death tolls in these accident will be enormous and surprising.

Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Saturn 18 year 0 months 25 days
The maha dasha of 3rd lord Moon is in operation from September 2015 to September 2025 in the foundation horoscope of India. The Moon as the 3rd lord in Taurus lagna horoscope is signifying communication systems, rail , road and air traffic etc. The Moon is in good Gaja Kesari yoga as it is in Kendra from Jupiter. During the dasha of Moon there will be great development in India’s communication network and public transport. Sun the lord of 4th house i also with Moon in a cluster of planets at the 3rd house. This dasha of Moon will give India tremendous improvements in public transport system, telecommunication, digital technologies, satellite communication, space technology etc.
At present Moon-Rahu period is running from February 2017 to August 2018. The Rahu is specifically seen for latest technological advancements, space technology, telecommunication etc. Rahu also shows significant foreign investment. So a strong Rahu in Taurus here is going to bring foreign investment in the public transport system. Astrologically it is highly likely that Indian government might open railway for foreign investment now any time before August 2018.
The services of some foreign and private companies will be taken to manage many of the operations of Indian railway. This action of allowing private players involvement in the Railway will be opposed by many unions. The railway unions will conduct strikes across the country to oppose the privatization. These railway strikes are likely to happen from March 2018 to August 2018 as per the study of above given charts. However, the government will not take any step backward on its policy of outsourcing job works in railway. Majority of the ‘group D’ jobs vacant in the Indian railway is likely to be filled by private contractor in coming months.
The BJP government had last year allowed 100% foreign direct investment in the aviation and defence sector. Now the results of this policy will start becoming visible during the remaining maha dasha of Moon till September 2025. By the end of this Moon maha dasha India will be able to develop its railway network at sufficient level to meet the demands of its huge population.
