Second Rake of KISAN RAIL chugs off from Anantapur Loaded with 262 Tonnes of Vegetables & Fruits

Keeping alive the interests and fulfilling the aspirations of farmers, second rake of Kisan Rail has started from Anantapur Station at the early hours of today i.e., o­n 20th September, 2020 to reach Adarsh Nagar Station, New Delhi. The Kisan Rail is expected to reach New Delhi o­n the following day i.e., 21st September, 2020. Within a short span of 10 days period after its inaugural run, Farmers and traders of Anantapur District showed keen interest to offer loading and subsequently the 2nd Kisan Rail was loaded with 262 tonnes of agricultural produce consisting of 239 tonnes tomatoes & 23 tonnes of fruits like Papaya etc. Out of 12 Parcel Vans in the train, 3 Parcel Vans consisting of 67 tonnes of tomatoes are bound to Nagpur, while the rest will be unloaded at Adarsh Nagar station, New Delhi.

The Indian Railways has been taking several steps to fulfil the vision of our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji to double the income of the farmer society. Majorly, an announcement was made in Union Budget 2020-21 about operation of Kisan trains and accordingly, Kisan Rails were started. As part of it, South India’s first Kisan Rail was started by South Central Railway from Anantapur Station with horticultural products and the train was flagged off by Hon’ble Union Agricultural Minister & Hon’ble Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh State o­n 9th September, 2020.

The horticultural products of Anantapur District are very much relished by the people of Northern parts of the country. Farmers of the Anantapur District have got an advantage in the form of Kisan Rail that shall reach the destination Station, New Delhi within 40 hours, which otherwise would take days together in other modes of transport.

Railway Officials of Guntakal Division were in constant touch with State Government Officials, farmers and traders and assured that full support will be extended to farmers and traders to transport their products through Railways. With their sincere efforts, Farmers could make it possible and they came forward to offer loading for second Kisan Rail bound to New Delhi. The positive intervention of Anantapur District Collector and the assurance to the farmers was an added advantage. As per the requirement of the farmers who wished the Kisan Rail to reach New Delhi by Monday afternoon to claim the advantage of favourable market conditions, Railway Officials have planned accordingly and placed the second Kisan Rail for Loading o­n Saturday and subsequently departed at 01.00 hrs of today.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, South Central Railway has expressed his happiness o­n the efforts of Guntakal Division Officials which helped in successful loading of Kisan Rail in a row within 10 days period. He also advised the farmers and traders to take the advantage of Kisan Rail in the ensuing harvest season, while assuring the maximum support from Railways side.
