Though India is advancing at a much faster rate when it comes to classy airports, but that is not the only section that requires development. The Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport has got new terminal which has been built by the GVK-led consortium and the cost of the complete construction has been 12,500 crores.
While the commuters of flight are being granted lavish facilities, the common man and the traveler of Indian railways are deprived of even basic facilities. It is one of the most shocking facts that ten people die each and every day at the railway stations of Mumbai and nothing is done in this regards plus the medical facilities provided are also awful.
The passenger often lose their balance and go off track in the overcrowded railway stations which even result in deaths and another major cause of death at stations is the deadly gaps between the train and the platform.
The site of the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport and the railway stations in Mumbai is like the two sides of a coin. The level of difference in both the modes of travelling around is depressing. When it comes to the airport a person is delighted with promises of heavenly journey, while other person traveling in a train is not even sure of getting out safe.
