in which a WAG9 electric locomotive can be seen conducting a trial on the soil of the state of Assam for the very first time.
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal shared a video on Twitter in which a WAG9 electric locomotive can be seen conducting a trial on the soil of the state of Assam for the very first time.
Rail Vikas Nigam Limited(RVNL) which conducted the trial run wrote on Twitter," RVNL completed an electric loco trial between Bongaigaon-Sorupeta on 18.02.2021. This is the first electric traction in operation in Assam changing the dynamics of train operations in NE region with green energy, efficient and environment-friendly options."
At present full operations are under electric traction is being done from the New Jalpaiguri(NJP) station which falls in the state of West Bengal.
The Ministry of Railways has aimed to transform the whole railway network and electrification has been accorded high priority as a part of the national goal to transform India into a green nation.
66% of track length has been electrified by November 2020. Railways aim to complete electrification of its entire broad-gauge network by 2023
The speed of electrification has been greatly scaled up from a level of 1176 KM in 2014-15 to 5276 in 2018-19 and 4378 KM in 2019-20 despite the setback due to COVID (in fact Cumulative 1,682 RKMs have been electrified till Nov’20 ). Once completed, IR will achieve a unique feat among the major railways in the world to run trains fully with indigenously produced power without dependence on imported fossil fuel. After 100% electrification, estimated saving on fuel/energy bill for IR would be about Rs.14,500 Cr per annum.
Indian Railways have fixed itself a stiff target of being a net-zero emitter of carbon by 2030 .This includes an ambitious target for complete electrification of IR network by 2023 and an equally ambitious target for generation of renewable energy using Railway’s assets.

BONGAIGAON, Sept 14 - The Biswajit Ray group of the AKRSU has ‘welcomed’ and ‘supported’ the Union Government’s move to allow entry and stay of Hindu migrants in Assam and slammed the leaders of the AASU and AJYCP for their ‘double standard’ on the issues of the State.
Following the rail blockade on Monday at New Bongaigaon, Pradip Ray, general secretary of the student group, said, “We welcome the Union Government’s step that allows the entry and stay of the Hindu migrants from Bangladesh in the State.”
When a huge portion of the

State’s land was left to Bangladesh in the land swap agreement, leaders of the AASU and AJYCP had kept mum and instead of going against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the deal, some of these leaders had later joined the party, he said.
“Now these very student groups have been opposing the adoption of the Bangladshi Hindu migrants as proposed by the BJP-led Union Government... this is their double standard,” Ray said.
The AKRSU, Koch-Rajbongshi Mahila Samiti and Chilarai Sena jointly staged the rail blockade near the New Bongaigaon railway station at 7 am this morning to push forward their demands of ‘Kamatapur’ and ‘ST status’. The leaders also warned that they would “root out the BJP from the State in the coming Assembly polls if our demands are not addressed within this year.”
The 12-hour rail blockade, which lasted only for three hours because of pressure mounted on the picketers by police, had disrupted the scheduled running of the down Rajdhani Express, up Intercity passenger and down Bangalore Express through the rail route for about three hours.
