Overview of Tram Transport in India

Trams are still functional in India in Kolkata. It is the oldest operating electric tram in Asia, running successfully since 1902. On 8 November 1976 the Calcutta Tramways Ordinance was enacted, under which the company vested all its assets with the government; it is now a public-sector undertaking.

Being the oldest and most successful tram system in Asia, this industry has potential for employment. The Government of Delhi is planning to bring tram cars in Delhi by 2017. Higher investment is expected in the future from public as well as private sector.

Considering these factors, it is safe to say that a Conductor Tram has good career prospects in India.
