“Doodh Duronto Specials” transported Four Crore Liters of Milk - From Renigunta in Andhra Pradesh (Guntakal Division) to Nation’s Capital, New Delhi - Guntakal Division transported 5 MTs of freight till 11th November (in the current FY)

Doodh Duronto Special introduced during lock down period between Renigunta and H. Nizamuddin for transportation of milk in order to balance the milk supply in the National capital, New Delhi has crossed 4 crore liters mark by 12th November 2020.

Prior to the lockdown, the milk from Renigunta has been transported to New Delhi through milk tankers by attaching to the Mail& Express trains as per regular schedule. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all the Mail& Express trains were cancelled resulting in hampering the transportation of the milk to National capital. Considering its importance, the South Central Railway has come up with a unique initiative of running Doodh Duronto as a special milk train. More importantly, the train is run o­n par with best of the Mail express trains and the distance between Renigunta and H. Nizamuddin (2300 km) is being covered within a reasonable time of 34 hours.

Milk transported through this special train has been collected by a unit of National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) from more than 3000 assembling points spread over 13,000 villages in and around the Chittoor district. With the enormous response received for the train, to meet the demand the Doodh Duronto special which was introduced o­n 26th March, 2020 to operate o­n every alternate day has been enhanced to run o­n daily basis from 15th July, 2020. Doodh Duronto specials, normally run with 06 Milk tankers, with each milk tanker having a capacity of 40,000 liters i.e., totaling to 2.40 lakh liters of milk in a train. So far, around 167 trips of Doodh Duronto special trains have been operated totaling to 1020 milk tankers duly transporting crore liters milk. It is relevant to mention that the milk loading has crossed the mark 4 crore liters from the earlier mark of 3 crore liters within 45 days’ span..

Further to this, even with pandemic times prevailing across the Nation due to Covid-19, the freight loading over Guntakal Division is back o­n to track and slowly picking up the normal pace. This has been possible with the introduction of various freight incentive schemes by Railway Ministry and also setting up of Business Development Units (BDU) to facilitate goods loading by Rail by the freight customers and traders. In the current financial year by the end of 11th November, 2020, the freight loading over the division has crossed the 5 Million Tonnes mark with the major share of Cement and Clinker loading of 1.8 MTs each. In addition, loading of new commodity gram dal to new destinations like Tadepalligudem, Vizianagaram and

Samalkota and loading of Fly ash to Tandur &Vishnupuram Cement plants, further loading of clinker to Madurai and Adra cement plants contributed in registering the Guntakal Diviion freight loading to 5 Million Tonnes.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manger, SCR has appreciated the consistent efforts of the staff and Officers of Guntakal Division for mobilization of milk to cater the Nation needs and for the initiatives being adopted for enhancing the Zone’s freight loading. He also expressed his happiness with regards to the Zone registering 5 MTs loading and crossing 4 (four) crore liters mark of milk.
