PR No. 353 - SCR registers Fastest Scrap Sale of Rs. 100 Crores in 103 Days during current financial year

SCR is leading amongst all zones o­n Indian Railways in making efforts to achieve ‘Mission Zero Scrap’, the zone has recorded a whopping Rs. 100 crore revenue through scrap sales in just 103 days during the current financial year 2022-23. The zone has doubled the scrap sale for the corresponding period of the previous financial year i.e., 2021-22 which was Rs. 52.12 crores. SCR has been in the forefront in optimal utilization of resources by mobilising scrap materials and undertaking sales through e-auction conducted o­nline through Indian Railways E-Procurement System (IREPS) portal.

Foot by Foot Mapping is being conducted rigorously by all Divisions so that all unserviceable scrap materials are offered promptly for sale. It is ensured that no scrap is accumulated either for a month or a truck load of quantity without processing it for disposal. SCR has been disposing condemned Rails and other P-Way items, Railway locos, coaches, wagons, other ferrous and non-ferrous materials accumulated from Divisions and workshops. 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. Many of the workshops, sheds and some divisions have already achieved the “Mission Zero Scrap” and are maintaining the same.

SCR has fully implemented the User Depot Module (UDM) at all stores depots across the zone. All users have been o­n-boarded and all transactions are being done o­nly through UDM. Through all these initiatives of e-procurement and e-scrap sales the zone has been bestowed with Railway Board Efficiency Shield for best performance in Materials Management continuously for the past 11 years.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager (In-Charge) complimented Materials Management Department officials and staff for their continuous efforts in achieving the fastest scrap sale of Rs. 100 crores within a short period of time. He stated that the e-auction process has improved transparency and ease of doing business. It has also reduced the grievances of purchasers and reduced the gap between Railways and the bidders. Further, the General Manager advised the officers and staff to continue their efforts so as to achieve higher targets in the future.
