First Fly-Ash Rake loaded from India Cements plant at Chilamkur

It is also the 1st rake to be loaded availing tariff rebate under the newly announced policy concessions for loading Fly-Ash by Railways

The India Cements plant at Chilamkur (near Yerraguntla in Andhra Pradesh) has started loading wet Fly Ash to their plant in Vishnupuram, near Miryalaguda in Telangana. This is the first time that Fly Ash is being loaded by Railways from this plant. Previously, the company used to transport the same through roadways. Fly Ash is an input used by the cement companies for manufacturing PCC (Portland Cement Concrete) cement. It is also an environment-friendly way of utilising fly ash.

The newly formed Business development Unit (BDU) of Guntakal Division has been making continuous efforts in expanding the railway freight basket of the division. The team has been holding regular meetings to make the freight customers aware of the benefits of transporting by Railways. The customers are also being briefed about the regular Policy initiatives being taken at the Board level for their benefit.

In this direction, in August 2020, the Railway Board has introduced a policy rebate of 40% concession o­n the Normal Tariff Rates (NTR), for freight customers who load Fly Ash either in bagged or in loose/bulk condition through open wagons. The BDU of Guntakal division acted accordingly in making the freight customers aware of the benefits by transporting their material by railways.

Now, these continuous efforts have resulted in the loading of the First Fly-Ash rake availing tariff rebate under the policy concessions through Railways from this plant. Apart from being beneficial to the customers in terms of freight concession and also generating additional revenue and loading to the Railways, transportation by the railways is also an environment-friendly way of transporting Fly-Ash.

Shri Gajanan Mallya, General Manger, SCR complimented the team of Officers and Staff of Guntakal Division for initiating this new stream of traffic for the Railways. He advised all the other Zonal and Divisional BDUs to continue their efforts towards taping new areas of freight business for the Railways. He advised the teams to particularly make the freight customers aware of how loading by Railways is not economically beneficial to them, but also beneficial in terms of safety, speed and being environment-friendly.
