Mr Sudhir Rao, Managing Director, India, Bombardier Transportation

Mr. Sudhir Rao
  • India’s Budget proposes to steer the economy to record levels by boosting investment in the infrastructure sector with clear and important commitments on improving rail transport.
  • Bombardier welcomes new government’s commitment to improve rail infrastructure in India, which is vital for the country’s growth and employment generation, with allocation of investments, identifying new avenues such as PPP for rolling stock and focusing on digitization.
  • Reinforcement on public private partnerships (PPP) will gain momentum with faster development of railway infrastructure, including rolling stock, and gives reassurance to the private sector.
  • These commitments, combined with a level playing field for the private sector, are important for companies like Bombardier to evaluate the future of the rail industry itself in India. Investment has been much needed for some time. We passionately believe that this will kick-start a new wave of India’s rail industry for innovation, manufacturing and exporting. The transition from the days of chronic under-investment to the renewed focus on improving capacity and ensuring a safe, efficient, fast and comfortable travel experience is extremely encouraging for Bombardier
  • Bombardier shares government’s vision to decongest India by rail investments and outlining a safer railway system in India.
  • Bombardier is committed to the Indian market and enthusiastic to bring our experience and new technologies for metros, suburban and intercity transit on these existing and new projects to build new rolling stock, rail equipment and signalling systems.
  • Bombardier is one of the leading global suppliers for commuter and intercity trains along with semi-high speed (upto 200 kms p/h) and high-speed trains (from 250 to 380 kms p/h) across the world and is keen to support Indian Railways efforts to increase train speeds, upgrade signalling systems and improve passenger comfort. We are able to bring world-class technologies at competitive prices to the world’s fastest growing economy through our deep and extensive engineering, manufacturing and service footprint in the country.
