According to an official release, dashboard brings information from various sources on a single platform and gives access to key statistics and parameters to every citizen of the country. This dashboard can be accessed using a desktop/laptop or a mobile device such as a phone or tablet. The application is mobile optimized for ease of use of public. The url of the dashboard is raildrishti.cris.org.in.
Speaking on the occasion, Piyush Goyal said that under the able-leadership of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, this Government has focused on people of India and has become a Government accountable to every farmer, youth, poor, middle class and all those who have relations of any kind with this government. This is the first Government in the history of India that showcased its report card to public every year. He further said that this government has used media and digital platforms for imparting all the information. This government has also tried to bring transparency in the working of all the Ministries.
The customer or railway passenger will get an exposure through this dashboard to the multifaceted transformation underway in Indian Railways across the country.

The information, when it reaches to the weakest section of the society, develops their morale and instills confidence in them that the country is progressing and is on the move. The Minister also advised to make Rail Drishti site simpler, user-friendly and easy to navigate.
