    That is what is expected of Railways management. Why are PF bloggers always looking for an opportunity to give credit to PF even when it is not necessary. That is how things were supposed to be done in a normal country. I ve never seen in any normal country to give credit any how. Leave the men and women of ZR to do what they were employed for.
