SCR starts it’s 100th Kisan Rail





- Kisan Rails Loaded from Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra

- The Zone has the distinction of loading South India’s First Kisan Rail as well as the First Kisan Rail from Telangana

The South Central Railway has achieved a major milestone today i.e o­n 15th March, 2021 by loading the 100th Kisan Rail over its jurisdiction. The achievement comes in a short pan of around Six months, from the time the South India’s first Kisan Rail was started from Anantapur. The 100th Kisan Rail was started today i.e o­n 15th March, 2021 from Nagarsol in Maharashtra transporting 236 tonnes of o­nions to Chitpur in West Bengal.

The Ministry of Railways has started the concept of running Kisan Rails in this financial year to assist the farming community. Taking cue from it, the Zone has taken forward the initiative with right earnest by proactively consulting with both the State Governments as well as the farming community for transporting agricultural produce through Kisan Rails. A massive consultation process was undertaken to brief all the stakeholders about the benefits of loading the agricultural produce through Kisan Rails.

All these efforts have culminated in SCR starting South India’s first Kisan Rail from Anantapur and later by running Telangana’s first Kisan rail from Warangal. Overall, the Zone has transported 1 train from Warangal, 2 from Tadipatri, 4 from Anantapur and 93 from Nagarsol. Significantly, the main objective of assisting the farming community with speedy, safe and cost-effective transportation was achieved by transporting the agricultural produce to over 15 destinations spanning across Six states. These include New Delhi, Maharashtra (Nagpur), Bihar (Naugachia, Fatuha), West Bengal (New Jalpaiguri, Malda Town, etc), Assam (New Guwahati and Baihata) and Tripura (Agartala).

Significantly, to assist the farming community (including farmers, traders, etc), the Union Ministry of Food processing Industries has also granted 50% tariff concession under the scheme “Operation Greens - TOP to Total” to provide cost effective transportation. The 100 Kisan rails have generated a revenue of Rs. 15.8 crores, out of which Rs. 7.5 crores subsidy was extended to the farming community under the Operation Greens - TOP to Total” initiative.

The 100 Kisan Rails from SCR have succeeded in transporting a variety of agricultural produce totalling 34,063 tonnes. The commodities include including Bananas, Tomatoes, Carrots, Papaya, Pomegranate, Grapes, Turmeric and o­nions among others. The Kisan rail have been instrumental in assisting farmers to provide a speedy, safe, cost-effective with minimum enroute damages to the farming community, while marketing their produce across the nation.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, South Central Railway has expressed his happiness o­n loading and transportation of 100 Kisan Rails from the Zone. He stated that, this novel initiative of introduction of Kisan rail by Indian Railways and granting of tariff concession by Union Ministry of Food Processing Industries will immensely benefit the KISAN community across the Nation and also helps in balancing the essential food items throughout the country. He also advised the Railway officials to extend all the possible help to the farmers and traders for transporting the agricultural products by Rail. Further he complimented all the officers and staff of various departments for the landmark achievement of transporting 100 Kisan Rails by the Zone.
