Indian Railways surges ahead on electrification drive

Indian Railways is moving ahead on its plan of electrifying its entire broad-gauge network, which would result in a better fuel energy use and increased throughput, as well as reduced fuel expenditure.

Up to October ’22 of FY 2022-23, Railways had achieved 1,223 route kilometres (RKM) of electrification as compared to 895 RKM during the corresponding period of FY 2021-22, a 36.64% rise.

Record electrification of 6,366 RKM was achieved during 2021-22. Earlier, the highest electrification in the railways’ history was 6,015 RKM during 2020-21.

At the end of December 2022, out of 65,141 RKM of BG network (including KRCL), 53,470 BG RKM had been electrified, which is 82.08% of the total BG network.
