  • "NRTI should now do research on initiatives of Railways undertaken in the last seven years like bio toilets, rail electrification and infra upgradation among others," Goyal said while reviewing the progress of the institute recently.

    The Minister also said that all training institutes under the Railways should come under one management roof of the NRTI.

Advocating for subsumption of all railway training institutes under one management roof of the National Rail and Transportation Institute (NRTI), Railway Minister Piyush Goyal has suggested that NRTI do research on the various mega works including bio toilets, and rail electrification as undertaken by the public transporter.

Situated in Vadodara, NRTI is India's first university exclusively focused on transport-related education, multidisciplinary research and training.

"NRTI should now do research on initiatives of Railways undertaken in the last seven years like bio toilets, rail electrification, infra upgradation etc" Goyal said while reviewing the progress of the institute.

The Minister said that all training institutes under Railways should come under one management roof of NRTI.

This would not only improve the quality of academic inputs, but would also bring in uniformity in training standards, reduce costs and optimise resource utilization, he said.

Goyal further said that within a short span of three years, NRTI has emerged as a pioneer institution of learning and all efforts should be made to enrich its academic infrastructure.

NRTI is on its way to becoming a world-class institution of advanced study where new talent will be developed through focus on higher education, cutting-edge research in rail and transportation technology and management.

NRTI aims to develop interdisciplinary Centres of Excellence which would be collaborative constructs to promote research and education to the transportation sector.

NRTI’s strategy is focused upon sourcing the best expertise from around the world from leading global institutions through institutional partnerships for collaborating on developing curriculum, research projects and executive education programmes.

NRTI is running a cutting-edge graduate and masters programmes in all aspects of logistics, transportation and management.

NRTI is also helping in professional development for the existing talent in Railways and transportation sectors.
