As revenue, the PFT operator can get handling charges as decided by the Indian Railways and other various value added services from its users.

The companies have submitted bids for 13 stations. These include four along the Eastern corridor and nine locations along the Western corridor.

The locations for which DFCCIL received bids are:

New Ateli

New Dharuhera
New Gholvad

Successful bidders from these companies will get permission from private firms to develop and manage terminals on their own land located near DFC railway stations, linked by rail. DFCCIL also has its own land parcels near the track, which it plans to develop later.

DFCCIL has invited bids to run roll-on-roll-on services between New Rewari and New Palanpur, allowing heavy and loaded trucks to move between these two points.
