Milk transportation by “Doodh Duronto Specials” crosses 7 crore litres Mark





                               This is the highest ever transportation of milk in any financial year                              Since commencement of milk loading from Renigunta

Doodh Duronto specials have transported 7 crore litres of Milk to National Capital, New Delhi in the current financial year 2020-21 till 16th March, which is highest ever transportation since its commencement.

Transportation of Milk from Renigunta of Andhra Pradesh has been started in the year 2011-12 and initially Milk Tankers were attached to Regular Superfast train to serve the purpose. Since then, transportation of Milk has been done o­n a regular basis, transporting around 2 to 3 crore litres in every financial year. There has been increase in demand as the years passed by and in the year 2019-20, 4.4 crore litres were transported. But in the month of April 2020, due to Covid lock down, when all passenger trains came to a halt, Milk transportation was a challenging task to the Zone.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, South Central Railway has right away alerted the officials of the Zone to go for an alternative through exclusive transportation of milk by running of special trains namely “Doodh Duronto”. Starting from 26th March, 2020, specials have been operated initially o­n every alternative day. Subsequently, due to increased demand, these specials were operated o­n daily basis from 15th July, 2020 and are being continued even today.

Considering the importance of Doodh Duronto specials, South Central Railway has been operating “Doodh Duronto” special o­n par with Mail express trains and the distance between Renigunta and H. Nizamuddin (2300 km) is being covered within a short time of 30 hours. Doodh Duronto specials are run normally with 06 Milk tankers, each having a capacity of 40,000 liters i.e., totaling to 2.40 lakh liters of milk in a train. So far, around 296 trips of Doodh Duronto special trains have been operated with 1,753 milk tankers duly transporting 7 crore liters of milk in the current financial year, which is the highest ever loading in any financial year since inception.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manger, SCR has appreciated the consistent efforts being put forth by the staff and Officers of Guntakal Division and Zonal Headquarters in the mobilization of milk to cater the needs of the Nation. He expressed his happiness with regards to the Zone crossing the highest ever transportation of 7 crore litres mark of milk in the current year since its commencement.
