The contract is worth Rs594 crore. The Railways will undertake the electrification work of Ringas-Jaipur- Sawai Madhopur 188km stretch through its own undertaking Rail India Techno Economic Service (RITES) at a cost of Rs163.73 crore.
Thus Rs757.73 crore will be spent in electrification in North Western Railway in the coming years. The electrification of Delhi-Sarai Rohilla-Rewari and Alwar-Bandikui-Jaipur-Phulera and Ajmer and Ringas -Jaipur-Sawai Madhopur section once completed will improve the efficiency of movement with the faster electric locomotives replacing the diesel-driven engines.

Similarly, the General Manager of the North Western Railway Girish Pillai exchanged the agreement with the CMD of RITES Rajeev Mehrotra for the Ringas-Jaipur-Sawai Madhopur section.
The Indian Railways has given higher thrust to infrastructure creation and electrification in the country. During the last four years years, total 103 railway electrification projects consisting of 16,815 route kilometre at estimated cost of Rs 17, 615 crore have been sanctioned.
