Nearly Rs.4.4 billion ($89 million) is spent annually on replacement of rails withdrawn prematurely due to corrosion.
A new alloy steel developed at the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur (IIT-K) has provided the answer to one of the major problems faced by the Indian railway system - corrosion of rails by toilet discharge. Field trials are in progress on use of NCC rails (Nickel, chromium and Copper - alloy rails) in Vijayawada -Chennai route of Vijayawada divn of SCR. So far performace is satisfactory.
