Interestingly, trains running lesser late than 10 hours had not been included in the list.

According to a recent report, from April 2017 to March 2018, 3,740 trains in India have reported late at the destination station which amounts to 28 percent. Moreover, if the records of the last three years are checked, around 3000 trains reported late in India.

This has happened when non less than the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has advocated the need for a bullet train in the country so that the commuters can reach their destination early. So the country is ready to move 200-300 people at full throttle while the rest of millions will be reaching late to the destinations without any fault.

Adding to the woes of the people as these trains get late by hours and there is difficulty in maintaining the time table, on many occasions the trains are cancelled creating a pandemonium like situation at the stations though the ticket holders book their tickets months in advance due to the fact that touts play a key role in the reservation system in this country.

So after booking your tickets and planning your trip for months, when you reach the station the train stands cancelled. So while one section of the people with heavy pockets can travel in the upcoming bullet trains in India, the so called cattle class also called the middle class in the country, will have to wait and watch till the last minute, whether they are lucky enough for the journey or not.

The report further suggests that the trains under North Central Railway (NCR) and North Eastern Railway (NER) are clear winners as far as late arrivals are concerned.
