Kisan Rail with Onions loaded for the First Time From Tadepalligudem to West Bengal



First Kisan Rail loaded with 246 Tonnes o­nions and transported to Malda Town

South Central Railway has been actively taking forward the “Kisan Rail” initiative by starting these trains from the various destinations across the Zone so as to support the farming community in marketing their agricultural produce. As part of it, Kisan Rails have been started from different stations of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharashtra with the committed efforts of Team SCR. Taking forward this initiative, now, for the first time Kisan Rail has been started from Tadepalligudem station of Andhra Pradesh. The first train has been loaded to Malda Town in West Bengal with 246 tonnes of o­nions.

The Business Development Unit (BDU) team of Vijayawada Division have conducted successful meetings with the Farmers and traders in the surrounding areas who desired to transport o­nions from Tadepalligudem station. The BDU also explained to the freight customers about various schemes and concessions being offered by the Railways. 50% tariff concession provided by the Union Ministry of Food processing Industries under the scheme “Operation Greens - TOP to Total” has also been extended to the freight customers transporting their products.

Transportation of Agricultural products through Kisan Rails has been proved to be safe, economical and cost effective besides providing a smooth and hassle-free transportation with least enroute damage to their products. Further, it has been more convenient for farmers, traders and cargo operators, since they can offer the loading in relatively small quantities.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, South Central Railway has expressed his happiness o­n Kisan Rail concept being huge success in the Zone. He complimented Officials and staff of Vijayawada Division o­n starting of first Kisan Rail from Tadepalligudem station of Andhra Pradesh. He also instructed the officials of the Zone to extend the Kisan Rail Concept to some more stations across the zone, wherever there is possibility of loading agricultural products, duly elucidating the facilities available by transporting through Rail.
