Railways to electrify all broad gauge routes by December 2023, bets on renewable energy; details
Indian Railways bets big on electrification and renewable energy!
The Indian Railways network will be completely electrified soon as Piyush Goyal-led Railway Ministry has planned to electrify the remaining broad gauge routes on the network by the month of December 2023. Recently, in a written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal shared that the Railway Ministry has planned to source around 1000 megawatt (MW) of solar power as part of its solar mission and around 200 megawatt of wind power based on the techno-commercial assessment. Out of this power, around 204.82 megawatt, which includes 101.42 MW of solar and 103.4 MW of wind power, has already been set up on the network. Solar and wind power are renewable energy resources, which is being utilized by the Indian Railways network.
The planning for the electrification of the remaining broad gauge routes of Indian Railways network is as follows:
In the year 2019-2020, a target of electrifying 6,000 km of broad gauge route has been planned
In the year 2020-2021, a target of electrifying 6,000 km of broad gauge route has been planned
In the year 2021-2022, a target of electrifying 6,000 km of broad gauge route has been planned
In the year 2022-2023, a target of electrifying 6,5000 km of broad gauge route has been planned
In the year 2023-2024 (till the month of December 2023), a target of electrifying 4,310 km of broad gauge route has been planned
Hence, Indian Railways has planned to electrify a total of 28,810 km of broad gauge route.
Additionally, in a bid to reduce the fuel burden of the Indian Railways network, the Railway Ministry has planned to install land based solar power plants across the country, over the unutilized railway land. This will be done to meet the energy requirements for both, non-traction as well as traction purposes.

Western Railway has completed the electrification work of broad gauge between Vadnagar and Mehsana, covering 34.43 kilometre in eight months, thereby connecting Vadnagar, the hometown of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, with the Indian Railways network on electric traction.
According to Western Railway officials, the project that began in May 2019 at an estimated cost of Rs 74.66 crore, was completed in January 2020. On Wednesday, RK Sharma, commissioner of Railway Safety, conducted an inspection at Vadnagar railway station.
In Railways, gauge or track gauge refers to the spacing between two parallel rails and is measured in accordance with the inner face of the rails. Broad gauge refers to track gauge broader than 1435 mm and is usually referred to as “Indian gauge”.
As per the officials, the electrification work of broad gauge between Vadnagar and Mehsana is part of the Mehsana-Taranga Hill Gauge Conversion project.
“The Ministry of Railways sanctioned the project in May 2019 and by July 23, 2019, we opened the section for traffic. The work was planned judiciously with great dedication and keenness towards completion of the project in record time of eight months,” said Ravindra Bhakar, public relations officer, Western Railway.
“Torrential rains during the monsoon season held up the work for three months but despite that we achieved the feat in eight months. With this electrification work, Vadnagar, which is also the birthplace of PM Modi, is now connected with the railway network on electric traction,” added Bhakar.

The Western Railway is also planning to develop Vadnagar Railway station, where Prime Minister Modi claimed to have sold tea as a child, as a tourist destination.
“Vadnagar railway station is being developed as a tourist destination on the heritage circuit of Vadnagar-Madhera-Patan under Swadesh Darshan Scheme. This section will now witness a socio-economic boom… It will boost economic, tourism and agricultural development in the areas and provide better opportunities to the people,” said Bhakar.
“Now that electric traction is extended up to Vadnagar, railways is expected to introduce more reliable and energy-efficient MEMU services as well as introduce new Mail/Express trains on this route,” he added.

અમદાવાદ-રણુંજ વાયા કડી મીટર ગેજ ટ્રેનો 15 સપ્ટેમ્બર, 2017થી બંધ કરાઇ હતી

બેચરાજી/ મહેસાણા: તીર્થધામ બેચરાજીને જોડતી અમદાવાદ-રણુંજ વાયા કડી મીટરગેજ લાઇનને બ્રોડગેજમાં રૂપાંતર કરવાના નામે આજથી બે વર્ષ પહેલાં ટ્રેનો બંધ કરી દીધી હતી. પરંતુ આજદિન સુધી બ્રોડગેજ લાઇનનું કોઇ કામ હાથ નહીં ધરાતાં લોકોમાં રોષ છે. ભરાયેલા લોકો પૂછી રહ્યા છે કે કામ શરૂ

કરવાનું જ નહોતું તો પછી ટ્રેનો શું કામ બંધ કરી. તો આ વિસ્તારના નેતાઓ પણ માટીપગા નીકળ્યા, જેમની પીપુડી કોઇ સાંભળતું ન હોઇ વિસ્તારના વિકાસ રુંધાઇ રહ્યો છે.

યાત્રિકોને હાલાકી
બેચરાજી વેપારી મહામંડળના સેક્રેટરી ચંપકલાલ શાહે જણાવ્યું કે, બ્રોડગેજનું કામ શરૂ કરવાનું જ નહોતું તો પછી મીટરગેજ ટ્રેનો બંધ કરવાની ક્યાં જરૂર હતી. ટ્રેનો બંધ થવાથી અહીંના વેપાર-ધંધાને મોટો ફટકો પડ્યો છે. દર પૂનમે અને રવિવારે બહુચરાજી માતાજીના દર્શને આવતા યાત્રિકોને પણ હાલાકી ભોગવવી પડી રહી છે. સરકાર ખરેખર બ્રોડગેજ લાઇન નાખવાની જ હોય તો તે પહેલા આ સ્ટેશનને ડેવલપ કરવાની જરૂર છે.

આદર્શ સ્ટેશન બનાવવાની બે વાર જાહેરાત
અમદાવાદ-રણુંજ વાયા કડી, કટોસણ, બહુચરાજી, ચાણસ્માની મીટર ગેજ ટ્રેનો 15 સપ્ટેમ્બર, 2017થી બંધ કરાઇ હતી. આ લાઇનને બ્રોડગેજમાં ફેરવવાની અને બેચરાજીને આદર્શ સ્ટેશન બનાવવાની બબ્બે બજેટમાં જાહેરાત કરી ઉલ્લુ બનાવાયાં છે. કારણ આજે સ્થળ ઉપર કોઇ કામ થયાં નથી. આ રેલવે સ્ટેશને આવી નજર નાખે તો ખબર પડે કે આ તો યાત્રાધામનું રેલવે સ્ટેશન છે કે ખરાબાનું જંગલ.
