NCR registers 43% growth in freight revenue in Apri-May

56% growth in tonnage loaded, despite COVID


As the financial year 2021-22 sets in, the nation was caught in the grip of second wave of COVID, posing a stiff challenge to the pace of o­ngoing economic activities.

North Central Railways, besides responding to the pandemic through its medical infrastructure, sets new benchmark by recording a 56% increase in freight loading in April-May as compared to the corresponding period of previous year.

Chief Commercial Manager/Freight Marketing, NCR Smt Anu Mani Tripathi while sharing the data told that the Railway strived hard to ensure loading of essential commodities and other freight mix should not get hampered o­n account of the pandemic. All COVID related protocols were strictly implemented at all the goods shed and sidings where handling of consignments take place.

"Our officers in the field are leading from the front and maintaining close liason with the industry to cater it's demand", said Anu Mani Tripathi.

In terms of tonnage loaded, NCR showed an increase of 56% in April-May 2021 as compared to this period in 2020, while in terms of revenue earned, NCR shows an increase of 43% over previous year.

Cumulative earnings this year stood at Rs 286.44 crores as against Rs. 200.75 crores in April-May 2020.

Among the commodities registering an upward growth were Petroleum loading from Rasulpur (near Kanpur, Jhansi Division), Cement loading from Chunar and Parichha and DOC loading from Ramgarh (Agra Division) and Morena(Jhansi Division). However, the main trigger in the growth is attributed to container loading from various depots like Dadri, Kanpur (both Prayag raj Division) and Malanpur( Jhansi Division).

"As a result of aggressive freight marketing measures undertaken in the form of offering discounts under 'Station to Station concession scheme' , we are able to attract incremental traffic of foodgrains from places like Etah, Datia, Dabra, Morena, Hodal and Harpalpur", informed CCM FM.

"While foodgrain loading stood at 67 (number of rakes) in April-May 2020, this year 94 rakes of food grains have been loaded in this period" informed Shri P.K.Ojha, Chief Freight Traffic Manager(CFTM)/NCR, head of Business Development Unit(BDU), NCR. "In addition to it, number of rakes of ballast loaded in NCR has also registered an increase from 26 to 37 rakes in these opening two months of the financial year as compared to previous year", he added.

Upon achieving the milestone, GM NCR Shri V.K. Tripathi says that although a positive trend is palpable in first two months still we have to go a long way and have to maintain the pace throughout the financial years. Shri Tripathi also said that an analysis should be done regarding commodities which have shown a dip in loading and all out efforts should be made by BDUs to revive it.
