Developing diesel locos because we have just 33% of electrified route at present in the country, and rest 77% is still on diesel electric traction. IR had never thought about converting the branch lines or other non profit routes except main lines etc. into ET, untill it realized , that they have been over spending in buying diesel, where as India has enough coal to generate electricity for railways. So, for Indian Railways, its cheaper to deploy ET than to buy diesel from foreign market. Now IR is going to keep a target around 4500 RKM to be electrified in every budget or five year plan.

That I totally agree with you as how slow the IR projects are, it cuz of red tapism, or we may call it babu giri, files going here n there for sanctions etc. it's not easy as a lot of money is involved. IR Should make a system where it decided on projects and hire a private firm to execute it, that's what happens in Germany , the Deutsche Bahn ( Their national rail company) designs and decides the routes to be electrified and give to Siemens , which is solely responsible for DB's electrification projects.

Thats what our govt. thinks more of short run then long run. They thought that of profits when it came to electrification of rail routes but didn't realise fuel costs.
