Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, have achieved
rapid economic growth in the past several years or decades after
they have "liberalized" their economies to foreign capital.
• Most first world countries, in order to remain globally
competitive, have pursued the path of economic liberalization:
partial or full privatization of government institutions and
assets, greater labor-market flexibility, lower tax rates for
businesses, less restriction on both domestic and foreign
capital, open markets, etc.

• The process of converting or "selling off" government-owned
assets, properties, or production activities to private ownership.
• After several decades of increasing government control over productive
activities, privatization came into vogue in the 1980s, along with business

service-oriented enterprises, such as
mining, manufacturing or power generation, but it can
also apply to any asset, such as land, roads, or even
rights to water.
• In recent years, government services such as
health, sanitation, and education have been particularly
targeted for privatization.

Hofstede’s Cultural Dimensions
1. Power distance
2. Uncertainty avoidance
• Power distance: Less powerful members
accept that power is distributed unequally
– High power distance countries: people
blindly obey superiors; centralized, tall
structures (e.g., Mexico, South Korea, India)
– Low power distance countries:
flatter, decentralized structures, smaller
ratio of supervisor to employee
(e.g., Austria, Finland, Ireland)
• Uncertainty avoidance: people feel threatened by
ambiguous situations; create beliefs/institutions to
avoid such situations
– High uncertainty avoidance countries: high need for
security, strong belief in experts and their knowledge;
structure organizational activities, more written rules, less
managerial risk taking (e.g., Germany, Japan, Spain)
– Low uncertainty avoidance countries: people more willing
to accept risks of the unknown, less structured
organizational activities, fewer written rules, more
managerial risk taking, higher employee turnover, more
ambitious employees (e.g., Denmark and Great Britain)
• Individualism: People look after selves and
immediate family only
– High individualism countries: High value on
autonomy; Individual achievement, Privacy
• High collectivism countries: High value on group
(Family, clan, organization); Loyalty; Devotion;
• Masculinity: dominant social values are
success, money, and material
– High masculine countries: stress on
earnings, recognition, advancement, challenge, we

INDUSTRIAL POLICY of INDIA
• The Industrial Policy indicates the respective
roles of the public, private, joint and co-operative
sectors; small, medium and large scale industries.
• It underlines the national priorities and the
economic development strategy.
• It also spells the Government’s policy towards
establishment, functioning, growth and
technology, labor policy, tariff policy etc. in
respect of the industrial sector.
• The Industrial Policy of India has determined
the pattern of economic and industrial
development of the economy. The Industrial
Policy reflected the socio-economic and
political ideology of development.
Industrial Policy upto 1991
The objective of the policy were to :
• Reduce disparities in income and wealth
• Prevent monopolies and concentration of
• Build a large and heavy public sector and manage
the same effectively
• Develop heavy and machine making industries
• Accelerate the rate of industrialization and
• Higher employment generation
• Focus on development of small scale sector
• Optimum utilization of installed capacity
• Rural Industrialization
• Promotion of export oriented units (Industrial
• Industrial Dispersal and decentralization
(Industrial Policy 1990)
The industrial policy of India prior to liberalization in
1991 was characterized by the following features:
• Dominance of Public Sector
• Entry and Growth Restrictions
• Restrictions on Foreign Capital and Technology
Dominance of Public Sector:
• Future development of 17 important industries
such as arms and ammunition, atomic energy, coal,
iron and steel, air transport, railway transport etc.
was exclusively reserved for the public sector.
• Under the Schedule B; 12 industries such as machine
tools, fertilizers, synthetic rubber, road, transport etc;
industries were progressively state owned and the State
would take the initiative to establish new undertakings.
Entry and Growth Restrictions:
• License was mandatory for establishing new units with
investments above a specified limit, for manufacturing of
new products and for undertaking substantial expansion.
• Large firms of Rs. 100 crore or above and dominant
undertakings (those with a market share of 25% or more)
had to obtain clearance under the Monopolies and
Restrictive Trade Practices Act in addition to the industrial
Restrictions on Foreign Capital and Technology:
• In industries where foreign capital was
allowed, it was subjected to a ceiling of 40% of
the total equity although there were certain
exception. Operations of foreign companies in
India and issue of securities abroad by Indian
Companies was regulated by the Foreign
Exchange Regulation Act, FERA 1973.
The New Industrial Policy 1991
The Industrial Policy announced on July 24, 1991
heralded the economic reforms in India and sought to
drastically alter the industrial scenario in our country.
The most visible sign of the country’s economic crisis in
early 1991 was:
• Extremely low foreign exchange reserves of Rs. 2400
crore (just enough to buy from abroad only three weeks
• Inflation was as high as 13.5%
This policy expanded the scope of the private sector by
opening up most of the industries for the private sector
and did away with the entry and growth restrictions. The
most important initiatives are with respect to the virtual
scrapping of industrial licensing and registration
policies, an end to the monopoly law and a welcoming
approach to foreign investments, apart from redefining
the role of the public sector.
Words like “dramatic”, revolutionary” and “drastic have been
used to describe this policy.
The New Policy has four features:
Liberalisation; privatisation, globalisation and
Redefinition of the role of the Public Sector:
The number of industries reserved for the public
sector was reduced to eight and it was later
pruned to two i.e. atomic energy and railway
Main features :Objectives of the Industrial Policy
of the Government are –
• to maintain a sustained growth in productivity;
• to enhance employment;
• to achieve optimal utilization of human
• to attain international competitiveness
• Development of indigenous technology through
greater investment in R&D
• bring in new technology to help Indian
• Incentive for industrialization of backward areas
• Ensure running of PSUs on business lines and cut their
• Protect the interests of workers
• Abolish the monopoly of any sector in any field of
manufacture except on strategic or security grounds.
• to transform India into a major partner and player in the
Policy focus is on –
• Deregulating Indian industry;
• Allowing the industry freedom and flexibility in
responding to market forces and
• Providing a policy regime that facilitates and fosters
growth of Indian industry.
Evaluation of the New Industrial Policy
Positives of the new policy are:
• Delicensing of most industries will help
entrepreneurs to quickly seize business
• Removal of controls under the MRTP Act will
facilitate expansion and growth.
• There will be greater inflow of foreign capital
and technology due to easing of restrictions.
• Burden on the public sector will be reduced
and reforms relating to the public sector like
transferring sick units to BIFR will help
improve their performance.
Watch- outs :
• The policy environment is much more
conducive for both domestic and foreign
investment than in the past. However, a host of
countries are now trying to woo foreign
investment with a much more conducive
economic environment than in India.
• cultural factor do also tend to tilt the balance in
favor of other nations.
• Foreign investors still regard the policy and procedural system in
India confusing. Rather many feel that policy and development
environment in China is superior to India.
This Policy has been criticized on the following grounds:
• The policy is a total departure from Nehru’s model of socialism.
• It will lead to domination of MNC on the Indian Economy.
• Trade Unions oppose the policy due to fear of unemployment which
may arise due to privatization.
• Monopolies and concentration of economic
power in a few hands is likely to increase.
• Distortion in industrial pattern would occur due
to slow pace of investment in few basic and
strategic industries. Absence of a mechanism
would slow down the development of backward
• Government is silent about tackling the growing
industrial sickness. The Government has not
announced a clear exit policy for sick units.
Second Generation Reforms
• The 1991 reforms have considerably helped in
improving the economic growth of the country. Yet
much more needs to be done to reap the full
benefits. There is a need for Second Generation
• A. Exploiting the Knowledge based Global Economy:
– Revolutionizing the telecom sector to help
integrate India’s economy into the world economy.
– Build institutes for higher education
– A system of intellectual property rights to reward
– Venture capital funds to finance risk projects of
the knowledge based economy.
B. Growing Indian Transnational Corporations:
– Indian firms to enjoy flexibility in entry and exit.
Freedom to diversify and close down unsuccessful
– Liberalize and move towards capital account
C. High Growth of Agriculture:
– State to ensure that adequate investments are
made in irrigation, agricultural research and
• D. Empowering the Poor:
– Integrate and consolidate anti poverty measures.
– Set up a system for old age security.
E. Human Development
– Primary education made compulsory.
– Involve private sector to provide better primary education.
F. Clean Environment:
– Arrest damage to environment
– Promote clean and healthy environment.
H. Improvements to Governance:
– Rationalize electricity prices
– Bring in legal reforms that ensure inexpensive and speedy
justice and at the same time facilitate economic growth.
• FDI in Multiple Sectors
• Disinvestment of PSE a process in which the public undertaking
reduces its portion in equity by disposing its shareholding
• disinvestments are being done to finance the budget
deficit it has reached unsustainable levels.
• “Strategic Disinvestment”. The government should be
the minority shareholder in these entities to give them
more autonomy and increase their competitiveness.
Role of AGRICULTURE in Economic
Why Agriculture Is Important
Before the Green Revolution, agriculture was widely seen as a
stagnant, low-productivity, and residual sector
Agriculture came to be seen as a growth sector that could:
1. Generate more food and raw materials at lower prices;
2. Free up foreign exchange for the importation of
strategic industrial and capital goods;
3. with rising rural incomes, provide a growing domestic
market for nascent national industries;
4. reduce poverty by increasing labor productivity and
employment in rural areas,
Role in Economic Development:
1. Contribution to National Income
2. Major source of Livelihood
3. Provider of Employment
4. Industrial development
5. International Trade
6. Capital Formation and Investment
7. Food and Fodder
Simon Kuznets identifies four factors contributing to the overall
1.Product contribution i.e., making available food and raw
2. Market contribution i.e., providing the market for producer
goods and consumer goods produced in the
3.Factor contribution; making available labour and capital
to the non-agricultural sector
4. Foreign Exchange contribution.
Relationship between Agricultural and non-agricultural sector
During the process of development, inter-dependence
Between agriculture and industry has become stronger
Arise from the interdependence of agriculture and
industry for productive inputs.
Linkages have got further strengthened with agriculture’s
dependence on industry reflecting the modernization of agricultural
There are strong demand linkages between the two sectors.
There is an impact of income and industrialization on the demand
for food and agricultural raw materials.
Savings and Investment linkages
There is an impact of rural income on industrial
consumption goods, i.e., clothing, footwear, sugar, edible oils, TV
sets, washing machines, refrigerators, motor bikes, etc.
“Rural bazaar out buys urban market”.
Features of Indian Agriculture
Dependency on Monsoons
Multiplicity of Crops
Diversity in other Spheres
Predominance of small farmers
Low level of productivity
Factors responsible for the backwardness of agriculture.
Factors can be classified as under:
1. Demographic factors
2. General factors
3. Technological factors
1. Demographic factors
Important Demographic factor responsible for low yield in
agriculture is the increasing pressure of population on land.

The supply of improved practices and services has always fallen
short of requirements.
Excess or surplus labour in Agriculture
Inadequate non-farm services

Indebtedness of the farmers
Inadequate irrigation facilities
Poor inputs and techniques
Agriculture Policy of India
Agricultural policy followed during the last five decades can be
broadly distinguished In 3 phases.
The period from 1950/51 to mid 1960s which is also called pre green
revolution period witnessed:
1. Tremendous agrarian reforms,
2. Institutional changes and
3. Development of major irrigation projects.
The intermediary landlordism was abolished, tenant operations
were given security of farming and ownership of land.
Land ceiling acts were imposed by all the states to eliminate
large sized holdings
Cooperative credit institutions were strengthened to minimise
exploitation of Cultivators by private money lenders and traders
Expansion of area was the main source of growth in the pre green
The scope for area expansion diminished considerably in the green
Increase in productivity became the main source of growth
in crop output
There was significant acceleration in yield growth in green
The country faced severe food shortage and crisis in early 1960s
which forced the policy makers to realise that;
Continuous reliance on food imports and aid imposes
Heavy costs in terms of political pressure and economic instability
There was a desperate search for a quick breakthrough in
One choice before the country was to go for spread of new seeds of
high yielding varieties (HYV) of wheat and rice
This marked second phase of agriculture policy in the country.
The green revolution technology involved use of modern farm
inputs, its spread led to fast growth in agro input industry.
Agrarian reforms during this period took back seat while;
Price support and
Spread of Technology
were the prime concern of policy makers
Two very important institutions were created in this period, namely:
Food Corporation of India
To maintain buffer stock to guard against adverse impact of
year to year fluctuations in output on price stability.
Agricultural Prices Commission,
To ensure remunerative prices to producers, maintain reasonable
prices for consumers.
These two institutions have mainly benefited rice and wheat crops
which are the major cereals and staple food for the country.
The next phase in Indian agriculture began in early 1980s.
While there was clear change in economic policy towards delicensing and deregulation in Industry sector, agriculture policy
lacked direction and was marked by confusion.
There has been a considerable increase in subsidies and support to
agriculture sector during this period
Investments by farmers kept on moving on a rising trend
The rural economy started witnessing process of diversification
which resulted into fast growth in non food grain output like
milk, fishery, poultry, vegetables, fruits etc which accelerated growth
in agricultural GDP during the 1980s.
Though green revolution has been widely diffused in irrigated areas
throughout the country,
The dryland areas did not see benefit of technological

There are also other important concerns like;
Improvement in standard of living of agricultural population.
The National Policy on Agriculture seeks to actualize the vast
untapped growth potential of Indian agriculture
Over the next two decades, the national agriculture policy
aims to attain:
• A growth rate in excess of 4 per cent per annum in the
• It is based on efficient use of resources and conserves our
soil, water and bio-diversity
• With equity, i.e., growth which is widespread across
regions and farmers
should be demand driven and caters to domestic
• Maximizes benefits from exports of agricultural
Growth that is sustainable technologically, environmentally
Food and nutrition security
Food and nutritional security has remained central to India’s
agricultural and development policy since Independence.
However, importance being accorded to food and nutrition security
has receded during 1990s because of two reasons.
There was accumulation of very large stock of grains in government
stock after April 1998 which.
Reduction in cereal consumption
To curtail Exploitation from money lenders credit facilities
Were provided to farmers through co-operatives, regional
Rural banks and government loan.
NABARD (National Bank for Agriculture and Rural
There has been steady increase in the flow of Institutional
Credit to agriculture over the years
Loans are provided to farmers for farming and other related
Activities like; well digging, equipments etc.
Kisan Credit Card Scheme:
Introduced in 1998 -99. Banks have issued more than
435 lakh cards in 2006.
The objective was to provide adequate and timely support
from baking system to the farmers for their cultivation need.
The card is coupled with a passbook where as per the credit
limit the transactions are recorded.
The limit is fixed on the basis of operational land holdings,
And cropping pattern and cycle.
Each withdrawal is to be repaid within 12 months.
Self Help Groups
These are linked to banks to offer support to the farmers or
rural population in variety of income generating programs.
There are various Insurance schemes and different covers
Introduced specifically for farmers.
These are linked to banks to offer support to the farmers or
rural population in variety of income generating programs.
Provision for Irrigation facilities
In spite of irrigation being given importance since 1950 – 51
There is a wide gap between potential and actual irrigation.
AIBP (Accelerated Irrigation Benefits Program) was launched
To encourage the states for completion of ongoing irrigation
Fast Track Program in 2002 was launched through Central
Provision for Irrigation facilities
Subsidies for fertilizers, electricity, seeds
Provision for Proper Marketing
Cooperative marketing is started by government to ensure
Reasonable prices to the farmers.
Regulated markets are being set up through out the country.
A committee was formed to analyze agriculture marketing in
India in 2002; the recommendation given were :Contract farming
Development of agricultural markets in private and
Use of information technology to provide in time
Establishment of direct purchase centres
Complete Transparency in pricing
Payments to be done on the same day.
Provision and expansion of storage and warehousing
Government worked on provision of cooperative storage
Food Corporation of India
Central Warehousing Corporation
State Warehousing Corporation
Institutions are engaged in Scientific Storage in rural India.
Public Distribution System
Traditional food problem in India is caused by large
fluctuations in production of food-grains
Lead to gravity due to absence of suitable transport systems
Rapid Growth of Population
Large part of income is spent in necessities, thus a rise in
Income leads to a large demand for food grains.
Government’s Food Policy
Government has been taking various steps to solve the food
Problem. Which constitute as food policy.
Increase in production through the extension of
Irrigation, propagation of high yielding varieties of
Efforts are made to save food-grains: Scientific Storage
Pest control measures are also popularized
Strengthening the distribution network
Wide network of ration / fair price shops
Statutory rationing of food grains in case of severe shortage
For Insulating prices from the market fluctuations, bufferStock operations are undertaken.
In case of shortage releases are made from the stocks to

Provision has been made to supply food grains to the poor at
Prices lower than that for the others.
Fixation of minimum support price
Procurement on announced prices for building reserves and
Feeding public distribution system
Fixation of issue prices usually lower for fair price shops
Subsidies for ration shops
In case of excessive supplies food grains are purchased and
stocked to prevent prices from falling below the MSP

Public Private Partnership
• A Public Private Partnership (PPP) is a partnership between the public
and private sector for the purpose of delivering a project or
service, which would traditionally be provided by the public sector.
PPPs involve the private sector partner providing a 'bundle' of services
such as design, construction and maintenance.
• Bundling thus differs from traditional contracting out, whereby separate
contracts are let for each service.
• Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) are collaborative efforts, between
private and public sectors, with clearly identified partnership
structures, shared objectives, and specified performance indicators for
There are a number of reasons governments are
attracted to PPPs.
• Value for money;
• Appropriate risk transfer to the private sector
• Early project delivery;
• Gains from innovation;
• Avoiding the need to borrow to finance
• Access to improved services.
There are four major ‘drivers’ to determine whether a PPP
is value for money.
• Risk transfer,
• Whole-of-life costing
• Innovation and
• Asset utilization.
2. the market demand for services (demand risk),
3. the cost of operations and maintenance,
4. declarations of force majeure, (an unexpected and
disruptive event that may operate to excuse a party
from a contract)
5. changes to the law and regulations.
• TDC - Traditional Design and Construction
The Government, as principal, prepares a brief setting out
project requirements before inviting tenders for the
design and construction of the project.
Private sector contractors undertake to design the project
in accordance with the brief, and construct it for an
agreed sum, which may be fixed or subject to escalation.
• O&M - Operation and Maintenance Contract
These projects involve the private sector operating a publiclyowned facility under contract with the Government.
• LDO - Lease - Develop - Operate
This type of project involves a private developer being given a
long-term lease to operate and expand an existing facility.
The private developer agrees to invest in facility improvements
and can recover the investment plus a reasonable return over the
term of the lease.
• BOM - Build - Own - Maintain
This type of arrangement involves the private sector developer
building, owning and maintaining a facility. The Government
leases the facility and operates it using public sector staff.
• BOOT - Build - Own - Operate - Transfer
Projects of the Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) type involve a
private developer financing, building, owning and operating a facility
for a specified period.
At the expiration of the specified period, the facility is returned to
• BOO - Build - Own - Operate
The Build-Own-Operate (BOO) project operates similarly to a BOOT
project, except that the private sector owns the facility in perpetuity.
The developer may be subject to regulatory constraints on

• A Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is a
geographical region that has economic and
other laws that are more free-market-oriented
than a country's typical or national laws.
• "Nationwide" laws may be suspended inside a
special economic zone.
• “….it is a specifically delineated duty-free
enclave and shall deemed to be a foreign
territory for the purposes of trade operations
and duties and tariffs”
• The purpose - “... to provide an internationally
competitive and hassle-free environment for
what is special?
• Exemption from taxes, various subsidies and tax sops hassle-free
• Exemption from stringent labour and environment regulations
• Single window clearance
• Land acquisition upto 1000 hactare Only.
• 35% of the area for industrial activity – the rest of the area for
entertainment and residential as well as other commercial
Reasons to develop SEZs
• Enhance foreign investment and promote
exports from the country.
• Need for a level playing field for the domestic
enterprises and manufacturers to be
• Growth Inclusiveness.
• India was one of the first in Asia to recognize the
effectiveness of the Export Processing Zone (EPZ) model in
promoting exports, with Asia's first EPZ set up in Kandla in
• With a view to overcome the shortcomings experienced on
account of the multiplicity of controls and clearances;
absence of world-class infrastructure, and an unstable
fiscal regime and with a view to attract larger foreign
investments in India, the Special Economic Zones (SEZs)
Policy was announced in April 2000.
The main objectives of the SEZ Act
(a) Generation of additional economic activity
(b) Promotion of exports of goods and services;
(c) Promotion of investment from domestic and
(d) Creation of employment opportunities;

- Main benefits sought from SEZs are:
Faster economic growth
Employment generation on a large scale
Earning more foreign exchange
Infusion of modern technologies & their
demonstration and spread effects
Economies in production due to

Infrastructure contributes to economic growth,
• Both through supply and demand channels by reducing
costs of production,
• Contributing to the diversification of the economy and
• Providing access to the application of modern technology,
raising the economic returns to labour.
• contributes to raising the quality of life by creating
amenities, providing consumption goods (transport and
communication services) and contributing to
Infrastructure sector plays an important role to
counter balance against slowing economic activity
and lower consumption.

Divided into Three Parts
Thefts by State Electricity Board Staff; where Meters

Theft by consumers; either by hooking or hampering
How they Can be handled
Reduction in Technical Loss is easier part
Initially distribution lines were extended in haphazard manner
leading to load development
Reconfiguring the loads offers an immediate scope for loss
It could be done using load flow analysis
Detecting unofficial loads

Electricity Theft in Rural Areas
A Case Study from Rajasthan.
Conducted by Prayas, an NGO
• Study was conducted in a primarily agricultural
electricity distribution Sub-division in South Rajasthan.
• Thrust was mainly on identifying a different approach to
Institutional reforms in the Power Sector
• Large scale Privatisation Model that has been pushed
by World Bank.
• The Study focuses on distribution losses in Rural areas.
Measures of Rajasthan State Electricity Board
To check distribution losses.
• Installation of Meters;
• Release of connections to all applicants in agriculture
• Strengthening Vigilance;
Findings of the Study:
• Non-Tribal agriculturally developed area accounts for
most of the electricity consumption.
• Urgent need for maintenance of distribution system.
• Commercial losses constitute the major portion of
• Unaccounted energy can be categorised in
• defective meters
• wrong meter reading
• illegal hooking
• Illegal hooking is rampant in agricultural categories.
• General mass of consumers expressed support and
willingness to undertake social vigilance.
• Politically powerful lobby of rich farmers opposed the
• Illegal connections out-numbered legal connections.
Reasons Identified by Prayas for high level of
• Backlog of Electricity Connections; giving a moral
• Poor and Interrupted Power Supply;
• High Entry Cost; Rs. 25000 for small farmers.
• High Tariff; Rs. 200 per month, whereas use of
kerosene is Rs. 20-25 per month.
• Pure Technical approach is not sufficient to control
• Release of Temporary connections;
• Conversion of flat rate into meter;
• Region specific commercial policy.
Railway Turn Around
• Shift towards Market Orientation and Customer Focus.
• Focus on Revenue Generation rather than cost control.
• Leasing out of the catering and parcel service businesses.
• IR attracted private investments under the wagon investment schemes.
• This freed up resources for utilisation in more remunerative activities.
• Bringing down working expenses was achieved through measures
such as the freeze on filling up vacancies and improving technical
• Increased use of technology resulted in improving technical
efficiency in services.
• IR also focused on the sub-strategy capacity enhancement and
ensured better capacity utilisation. Through enhanced axle-load and
reduction in turnaround time of wagons by 14%, IR increased
wagon capacity available per day by 36%.
• The number of employees, which peaked at 1.652 million in 1991,
was brought down progressively to 1.472 million by 2003, and to
1.412 million by 2006.
•One of the elements of retrenchment is to trim excess staff. The
approach that IR adopted was not to fill up vacancies created by
retirement or other reasons.
Dedicated Freight Corridor
• A dedicated freight corridor exclusively for running freight trains at
a maximum permissible speed of 100 Kmph.
• DFC will not add to the capacity of the Indian Railways, but will
• DFC will reduce transit time between Delhi and Mumbai from 60
hours to 36 hours.
will also reduce the cost of operation.
total length of the route for DFC is 2,700 km.
• Currently the trains handling containers are single stack containers,
but DFC will have double stack containers of 25 tonne axle load,
which will increase the cargo handling capacity to 25 per cent.
• The length of a conventional goods train is 650 m and runs at 75
km per hour, whereas for DFC the length of the train will be 1.5
km and will run on the speed of 100 km per hour.
• The Railways will spend Rs 2,000 crore on signalling, and will
procure fixed signalling equipment.
• Advanced Signaling System facilitating better and efficient
operation of trains.
• Transfer trains from the existing corridor to the DFC and vice
versa through predetermined Junction arrangement, equipped with
grade separators to facilitate smooth transfer of trains between the
Dedicated Freight Corridor
The salient features of the project are:
· Primarily Double Line corridor (except where Single Line is
justified on traffic considerations) running parallel to the existing
corridors, so as to maximize the usage of available railway land;
· The track sub structure like formation, bridges etc are to be fit for
32.5-ton axle load but the track super structure like track,
sleepers, ballast etc are to be fit for 25-ton axle load.
· The loop length on the proposed corridor to be 1500 meters long
to facilitate running of long haul trains.
• Western Corridor will start from the Jawaharlal Nehru Port to Dadri
connecting Baroda, Ahmedabad, Palanpur, Jaipur and Rewari to
Tughlakabad and Dadri.
• The western corridor comprising mainly of container traffic has
envisaged about four logistic parks, one each near cities like Delhi,
Jaipur, Ahemdabad and Boroda.
• Eastern Corridor will start from Ludhiana to Sonnagar via Ambala,
Saharanpur, Khurja and Allahabad.
• Both the corridors would be joined by a link between Dadri and
Khurja, the feeder routes of this corridor connecting ports of Gujarat.
