Surpassing the target of 27.5 MTs set by the Railway Board, the Zone has recorded freight loading of 28.6 Million Tonnes (MTs) during the period between April – June 2021 which is 55% more when compared to the loading of 18.4 MTs recorded during April – June 2020.This has been accompanied by 58% increase in freight revenue (Rs. 2,468 crs) as well. In spite of the impact of second wave of Covid-19, the Zone continues to show positive momentum in the freight loading due to the relentless efforts of Team SCR under the able guidance of Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, SCR.

With continuous monitoring and follow up by the team SCR,Cement and Containers loading have also seen an upswing.

The Zone has given special emphasis o­n availability of wagons so that the Supply is sharply met o­n par with demand. This is clearly visible in the increase of average wagons supplied in a day. During the current year, 4830 wagons are being supplied in a day o­n an average, while 3175 wagons per day were available during the last year. The movement of freight trains is being given due importance and regularly monitored at all levels, duly maintaining the average speed of freight trains consistently between 47 to 50 Km/hour.
