How Railways is helping the Milk-Industry ?
• Gujarat’s second largest dairy — Dudhsagar Dairy of Mehsana — is all set 
to flag off a dedicated train to transport milk to the country’s biggest 
milk market, Delhi, on a daily basis by the end of this year. 
“Milk will be carried in insulated tankers of 24,000 liters capacity each (50 
bogies for 12 lakh litres),” said manager (sales & logistics) of Mehsana Dairy 
Pulak Mukherjee 
North Gujarat-based Banas Dairy had flagged off a train carrying four lakh 
litres of milk from Palanpur to Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh.
Railway Freight 
 Freight traffic is the major source of revenue for Indian Railways. 
 Only one-third of the 13000 trains running daily on IR are freight trains, but 
it accounts 65% of total revenue of IR. 
 Railway Freight traffic is vital for economic and industrial progress of the 
country. 
 Raw materials from producing centers to factories and finished/semi-finished 
products from factories to consumption areas or ports for export has 
to be carried. Eg: Coal reserves from Bengal and Bihar has to be transported 
to thermal and steel plants all over the country.

Govt. of India and Govt. of Haryana 
• Won the ICICI Bank Retail Excellence Award in 2005.
CHALLENGES AHEAD
Challenges: 
1. Overburdened and inadequate railway network 
2. Unfavorable geographical conditions, beyond reach regions. 
3. Stiff competition from road transport and thus its share in passenger and 
goods traffic is declining. 
4. Overburdened with surplus staff on its regular pay roles, hinders the 
further development of railways. 
5. The railways have to develop uneconomic projects due to political 
pressures and interferences.
6. Huge outstanding payments to diesel and electric power supply companies. 
7. The State Electricity Boards and NTPC increase the tariffs arbitrarily and 
thus adds to the burden of railways. 
8. Railways are the largest consumer of diesel. Any increase in the rates of 
diesel, adversely affect the financial resources. 
9. Most of the equipment used by the railways are now obsolete and need 
immediate replacements. 
10. There is mounting deficit due to non increase in fares and tariffs by the 
Government due to political reasons.
