(a) Indian Railways (IR) has embarked upon a major electrification program to electrify its Broad Gauge (BG) network by December, 2023 as electrification offers advantages like:

  • Reduced operating cost.
  • Haulage of heavier freight trains and longer passenger trains with high haulage capacity of Electric Locomotives leading to increased throughput.
  • Increased sectional capacity by eliminating detention on account of traction change.
  • Reduced Operating and maintenance Cost of Electric Loco.
  • Environmental friendly mode of transport.
  • Reduced dependence on imported diesel fuel, thereby saving precious foreign currency.

(b) Funds to the Railway projects are allocated project wise, not State wise. However, Budget allocation and expenditure for the Railway Electrification projects for entire Indian Railways (including in the State of Rajasthan) during the last three years and current year is as under:-
