Railway week celebrations are held annually during the month of April to commemorate the first train ran o­n Indian soil i.e., 16th April, 1853.

Speaking o­n the occasion, Shri Gajanan Mallya stated that though the financial year 2020-21 was witness to unprecedented challenges due to Covid-19 pandemic, the remarkable and extra-ordinary efforts put in by team SCR helped to earn major achievements for the Zone. The Zone has added a record 308.8 Kms track to its railway network, which is perhaps the highest addition in a financial year history of SCR. This includes commissioning of 42.5 Kms of New Railway lines, 161.5 Kms of Double Lines, 60.4 Kms of Third Lines and 44.4 Kms of Gauge Conversion works. Along with it, a staggering 750 track kms of our railway lines were electrified under the Mission Electrification of Indian Railways. He stated that the Zone came up with a variety of new services such as Indian Railway’s first exclusive Milk Special Train i.e., Doodh Duronto, Indian Railway’s first Parcel Express to Bangladesh etc., during the last financial year which led to registering the best ever parcel revenue of Rs. 108 crores. The Business Development Units have yielded good results in diversifying SCR’s freight basket. Around 22 new streams of traffic started in 2020-21 contributed to Rs. 438 crores in revenue helping in the Zone achieving Rs. 8498 Crores in freight revenue and transporting 95.9 Million Tonnes.

Speaking o­n safety, the General Manager stated that Safety has always been an overriding priority for SCR. To strengthen it, the Zone has eliminated 81 Manned Level crossing gates and interlocked 13 Level Crossings. The first of its kind indigenously developed Train Collision Avoidance System was further extended to 34 stations and additional 321 Kms.

The General Manager added that SCR continues to lead in the Digital initiatives. It is among the first Zones over Indian Railways to launch the Hospital Management Information System. The Zone has also been at the forefront in taking eco-friendly initiatives. In this direction, all the identified 63 railway stations of the zone have been certified with ISO 14001 and 37 pairs of trains are being operated with HOG technology.
