PR No. 13 SCR Records Rs. 315 crore Revenue through Scrap Sales in Financial Year 2021-22

- Secunderabad Division, SCR recorded the highest ever single day auction sale of Rs. 5.71 crore in March, 2022

In a significant stride towards ‘Mission Zero Scrap’, South Central Railway has recorded whopping Rs. 315.05 crore revenue through scrap sales in the financial year 2021-22. The zone has also exceeded the scrap sale of the previous financial year i.e., 2020-21 (which was Rs. 308 crore). SCR has been making all efforts to optimally utilise the resources by mobilising scrap materials and undertaking sales through e-auction. In a noteworthy achievement, Secunderabad Division, SCR recorded the highest ever single day auction sale of Rs. 5.71 crore in March, 2022.

SCR has been a pioneer among Indian Railways in making efforts to achieve Scrap-free status, for which the Zone has been consistently receiving the Railway Board’s Efficiency Shield for Materials Management continuously for the past 10 years. The dedicated SCR team has again shouldered the ‘Mission Zero Scrap’ project, which ensured that no scrap was accumulated either for a month or a truck load of quantity without processing it for disposal. This practice has contributed towards clearing out workshops, Loco sheds, Railway Units and premises and the conversion of every scrap material into a financial resource for the exchequer. In addition, the project has also contributed to the ‘Swatch Bharat Abhiyan’ campaign of the Government of India.

South Central Railway has been undertaking the sale of scrap via e-auctions conducted o­nline o­n the Indian Railways E-procurement System (IREPS) portal. This has improved transparency, competitive bidding and ease of doing business. Keeping up with the Digital India initiative, e-auctions have ensured paperless transactions. Further, the e-auction system has eliminated the erstwhile middle men who existed during manual transactions, improved participation of bidders across India and reduced the grievances of purchasers.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager (In-Charge), SCR appreciated the team for their sincere efforts in achieving a revenue of Rs. 315 crore through scrap sales. He advised the officers and staff to continue their efforts so as to achieve a higher target in the future. The General Manager stated that the e-auction module has ensured a smooth payment process and is saving time and toil for both the Railways as well as the bidders. It is also cost effective and an efficient method of scrap disposal o­n Railways.
