Railways require 200 electric locos with 9,000 horse power (HP) each to haul double-stack containers in the upcoming 1,534 km long Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) from Dadri to Mumbai, passing through Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat and Maharashtra. According to the tender conditions, the selected manufacturer will make 190 locos at the Indian Railways’ Chittaranjan Locomotive Works facility in Asansol, with transfer of technology provision and import of only 10 engines. The company will also set up a maintenance depot at Rewari. Showing interest in the project, five international players — Siemens, Bombardier, Alstom, BHEL-EMD and Toshiba-CRRC — have submitted applications on March 15, the last date for submission of pre-qualification bids. “These companies will submit their price bid by the end of April and the awarding the contract is expected by December this year,” said a senior Railway Ministry official.

Ashwani Lohani walked down the track on a full patrolling beat stretch of 2km, and walked back in adverse weather conditions, with patrolmen.
Indian Railways takes it very seriously when it comes to safety and security and this was proved by the Chairman of Railway Board, Ashwani Lohani. Lohani on a chilly Saturday night took to the tracks between Delhi and Rewari and conducted in-person patrolling duty on the route. In freezing temperatures, Lohani took a first-hand look at the challenges faced by the patrolmen, even down to the ground level track inspection. Lohani was accompanied by just the beat patrolmen on Delhi-Rewari section.
