The initiative of Shri Vinod Kumar Yadav, General Manager, South Central Railway towards enhancing the pace of completion of projects o­n the Zone has yielded significant results. The Zone has attained a new achievement of completing electrification of railway lines o­n its network to the extent of 397 Kms during the first quarter of the current fiscal i.e. April - June 2017 three month period. This record completion of 397 Kms electrification comes in comparison to 93 Kms commissioned during the last fiscal of 2016-17 and sets a high benchmark, reached for the first time.

sections completed during April - June 2017 are:
ØGuntakal - Chiksugur for a distance of 135.58 Route Kms
ØNallapadu - Cumbum for a distance of 164.48 Route Kms
ØGuntakal - Dhone for a distance of 69 Route Kms
ØGooty - Pendekallu for a distance of 28 Route Kms
Electric traction continues to play a dominant role in the Railway since it is a clean technology and energy efficient mode of transport. Electric traction is best suited for massand rapid transport, it reduce running time of passenger trains and makes possible to run longer train. Being energy efficient system it is also preferred for long and heavy freight trains to ensure quicker transportation of goods.
In South Central Railway electrification has been under progress o­n large scale. In current financial year, in addition to the 397 Route Kms electrified, it is planned to complete electrification in several other stretches too.
The Guntakal - Wadi section which includes the newly electrified Guntakal - Chiksugur section has already been commissioned for rail services with electric loco motives hauling the trains. This has made seamless operation of trains o­n electric traction without any change of locomotive from New Delhi to Bengaluru via Secunderabad. The Bengaluru-Hazrat Nizamuddin Rajdhani Express via Secunderabad will be running o­n electric traction entirely between the two destinations. Commissioning of electrification o­n this section has speeded up the coal transportation to Raichur thermal power plant.
In Nallapadu - Cumbum section, inspection of Commissioner of Railway Safety is completed and clearance has been received. It is planned to run passenger train o­n electric traction from Tenali - Markapur shortly. Freight train has already started running by electric locomotives from Nallapadu - Cumbum.
In Guntakal - Dhone and Gooty - Pendekallu section the inspection of CRS has been completed and clearance obtained. Electrification of these two sections increases the capacity of train movements and speeding of rail services, o­n the Guntakal - Gooty - Pendekallu triangle, thereby significantly improving the rail services to Bengaluru and Chennai, Vijayawada and Secunderabad.
The stress of General Manager towards speedier electrification of Railway lines is in tune with the objective of strengthening of rail infra to run more services and also reduce carbon footprints o­n account of running diesel traction which results in pollution.

Though the efforts are commendable , not much can be perceived on the ground as the balance of dhone-cumbum region holds the key for bza-sbc e loco travel. Also until the completion of GTL-Kalluru doubling and electification gets completed , all the trains on eloco from wadi have to divert to GTL-gooty-Kalluru. The success depends on the timely completion of these minor stretches.
