Transportation of Milk by rail from Renigunta to New Delhi has been very important and crucial to meet the essential needs of the Nation.

The Zone has been operating these trains o­n par with Mail express trains by covering the distance of 2300 Kms from Renigunta to H. Nizamuddin station within a reasonable time of 30 hours.

Doodh Duronto specials are run normally with 06 Milk tankers, each milk tanker having a capacity of 40,000 liters i.e., totaling to 2.40 lakh liters of milk in a train. So far, 2,502 milk tankers have been operated in 443 trips of these special trains transporting more than 10 crore liters of milk. The Officials of Guntakal Division are in constant touch with the freight customers who are offering the loading of milk and have been attending to their requirements so that there is no hindrance in operation of the trains. Since introduction of this novel initiative, these trains have been operated continuously during peak Covid times and is also being continued further to balance the supply chain of the essential commodities..

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manger, SCR has specially complimented the staff and Officers of Guntakal Division and Zonal Headquarters o­n surpassing the 10 crore litres mark in transportation of milk. He also conveyed special thanks to the freight customers who have been supporting this novel initiative in supplementing the Nation’s cause.
