    The same reason the roads in India are poorer than in the USA. India has the largest rail network in the world, and it is well-run (but not quite as good as Japan) because that is the primary means of long distance travel.

    There are 200 MILLION more cars in America than India, and the car/coach is the preferred mode of transport for a country rich in oil.

    Because they are not. American rail is much better overall operation. Best way to tell this is how much money it makes.

    India's Railways are subsidized and managed by the government as a public service.

    In the USA the Railways are mostly operated for profit, which means, they have to pay for themselves.

    Less use. Nearly every adult in the USA has a car, so they are not willing to spend much on railroads.
