For the First Time Onions Loading through Kisan Rail Started from Moula-Ali Station





- First Kisan Rail loaded with 361 Tonnes o­nions and transported To New Jalpaiguri Station of West Bengal

To assist the traders, cargo operators and farmers in and around Twin city areas of Hyderabad and Secunderabad in transporting their Agri products to farther destinations across the country, South Central Railway operated Kisan Rail from suburban railway stations of twin city area. In this direction, for the first time, Kisan Rail has been started from Moula Ali railway station to New Jalpaiguri Station of West Bengal. The first Kisan Rail has been loaded with 15 Parcel Vans consisting of 361 tonnes of o­nions.

The Business Development Unit (BDU) teams formed across the Zone are playing vital role in capturing the new commodities in the freight basket of South Central Railway. Accordingly, the BDU team of Secunderabad Division have been in regular contact with the Farmers and traders in the potential areas who desired to transport agricultural products. These consisted efforts have yielded results and the Secunderabad division is able to capture the o­nion loading from Moula- Ali railway station.

The BDU team has been successful in explaining the freight customers about various schemes and concessions being offered by the Railways including 50 % freight concession for transporting agricultural products by Kisan Rail. So far, the farmers and traders have been regularly sending their products through Road ways to the eastern parts of the country which involves lot of effort and abnormal delays. Transportation of Agricultural products through Kisan Rails has been proved to be safe, economical and cost effective when compared to the Roadways. The time taken to reach the destination is very less, besides being hassle-free transportation with least enroute damage to their product. The BDU team clearly explained all these factors to the freight customers and convinced them for offering loading by Kisan Rail.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manager, South Central Railway has complimented the Secunderabad Division officials and others who have taken special interest in capturing the traffic and starting the Kisan Rail from Twin city stations. He also instructed the officials of the Zone to extend the help to the freight customers so that Kisan Rails can be operated o­n regular basis from these stations.
