Rail transportation plays a vital role in virtually every segment of the economy and has a direct impact on growth, industrial development, regional integration and foreign trade. Rail is the preferred means of transport for all major types of cargo with the exception of oil and gas. The Ministry of Railways and its successor organisation (Railways) managed one of the world's largest railway enterprises. In 2003 Railways was merged with the Ministry of Transport (MoT), but continues to operate under MoT's governance as an incorporated open joint-stock company.
