he history of the Indian railway dates back to the time of the British era, where they created a complex railroad system to take the raw materials from the hinterlands to the ports. More than half a century later Indian Railways has now transformed into one of the busiest and commonly used public transportation systems in the world. As one of the most complex and intricate railway systems in the world special care and attention should be given to the regular maintenance of the systems. Many consultants and agencies started focusing on offering solutions for the railways after the Indian Government started various initiatives to improve the railway network by modernizing the signaling system and electrifying the entire network. With the urban transport and metros also witnessing an expansion into the network the competition in the space is getting fiercer day by day.
Acknowledging the gap in understanding the cost and time needs of the industry BARSYL started its operation in 1986. Balaji Railroad Systems Private Limited or BARSYL started off as a partnership firm to offer consultancy and advisory services to user industries of the Indian Railway system mainly cement and power. Since their inception, the company headed by H C Shrivastava, Arjun Pershad and MP Sankaranarayanan has been working round the clock to offer expert solutions that could bridge these gaps and improve the overall quality and efficiency of the Indian railways.
