PRESS RELEASE

No.112/2020-2119-05-2021
Secunderabad
150th Kisan Rail from Nagarsol starts today -The journey to the 150th Kisan Rail was achieved in a short span of 126 days



The 150th Kisan Rail from Nagarsol in Maharashtra is being started today. From the time the first Kisan Rail was started from Nagarsol o­n 05th January 2021, it took o­nly 126 days to complete 150 Kisan Rail. Importantly, this has been achieved from a single location in South Central Railway. The 150th train is being loaded with 246 tonnes of o­nions and is destined for Malda Town in West Bengal.

The success of the Kisan Rail initiative can be gauged from the fact that, from the time it was introduced there has been a continuous demand for the trains. Overall, a total of 47,957 tonnes of agricultural produce has been transported by these Kisan Rails from Nagarsol. The commodities transported include o­nions, Water Melons and Grapes. These have been transported to various places like Adarsh Nagar in New Delhi, New Guwahati, Malda Town, Agartala, Fatuha and New Jalpaiguri among others.

The Kisan Rail initiative has been started by Railways to provide safe, secure, fast and economical mode of transportation for the agricultural farmers and traders. o­ne of the important factors for the success of the initiative is the 50% concession received by the agricultural farmers / traders for transporting their produce by Kisan Rails. The Union Ministry of Food processing Industries has been offering this concession under the “Operation Greens - TOP to Total” scheme for transporting agricultural produce by Kisan Rails.

Apart from this, transportation by Railways ensures fast transportation with least enroute damages to the small farmers and traders, thereby helping in realizing better value for their produce. Even during these pandemic times, Railways are continuing to operate Kisan Rails duly taking all precautions, for assisting the agricultural farmers and traders.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager of South Central Railway complimented the team of Nanded Division in transporting 150 Kisan rails in such a short span. He advised all the Divisions to take all COVID related precautions, while at the same time continue assisting the agricultural sector to achieve better value for their produce.
