Indian Railways records best ever performance in freight loading in April'22

In April 2022, Indian Railways (IR), which had the greatest ever performance in freight loading in 2021-22, maintained the pace, reporting a record 122.2 MT of freight loading with an incremental loading of 10.5 MI, a 9.5% increase over the previous best results in April 2021.

With the achievement of this new milestone in freight loading. For the last 20 months, IR has posted the greatest monthly results ever, and the trend that began in September 2020 has continued unabated, with new monthly freight loading records being established with each passing month.

According to media sources, the NTKMS booked through Indian Railways on April 22 climbed by 17.7% from 62.6 billion in April 2021 to 73.7 billion in April 2022.

5.8 MT of extra coal loading, 3.3 MT of food grains, and 1.3 MT of fertiliser loading have all contributed to this rise.

Except for raw materials for steel plants (including iron ore) and finished steel, all commodities have increased over the previous year's similar period. In terms of waggons loaded per day, there has also been a 9.2% increase, with IR loading 66024 waggons per day compared to 60434 waggons last April.

\With the country's economic recovery and a reduction in imported coal-based power (due to high international coal costs), demand for domestic coal has increased significantly, which has been provided continuously by railways.

It was demonstrated by the fact that Indian Railways boosted coal shipment to power plants by 32% between September 2021 and March 2022. This trend continued in April, with overall coal loading seeing a solid increase on April 22. IR loaded more coal (both domestic and imported) over longer leads, resulting in greater NTKMS.

The loading of coal increased by 11% on April 22 compared to April 21, with lead increasing by 9% and NTKMs increasing by more than 20%. Loading of domestic coal for power plants surged significantly by 18.8% on April 22.

The loading of food grains increased by 95% in April, owing to good procurement by FCI and strong demand for wheat exports.

There has also been a 53% rise in fertiliser loading. The container segment has grown by more than 10%, while the domestic container segment has grown by more than 25%.
