Abstract—Recent maintenance techniques and distinctive deformation case study of Indian railway tunnel is presented in this paper. Inspection of tunnel lining is divided into primary inspection and secondary inspection. Under the study, non-destructive inspection method is used in the process of practicable inspection to make this routine introduced. Repair and reinforcement methods of deformation tunnel is divided into countermeasures against earth pressure, countermeasures for deteriorated lining, countermeasures against leakage of water and weathering damage, and countermeasures against spalling. Moreover, the present case study is concerning recent typical deformation of Darekasa railway tunnel pertaining to countermeasures against leakage of water and weathering damage and spalling of tunnel lining.
