Electrification: CORE to electrify 6,200 km in 2019-20, Updated timelines here

The Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE) plans to complete 6,234 route km of electrification in FY 19-20.

Overall, CORE is tasked with electrification of 22,800 route km of railway lines across IR. Other agencies, including IRCON, RITES and Zonal Railways themselves, are together to handle electrification of 7,800 additional route kilometres (rkm).

The Indian Railways, as of 1st April 2019, had a Broad-Gauge network of 64,298 rkm. Out of this, 35,488 rkm was electrified.

By mid-July, CORE reported having completed work, and inspection by the Commissioner for Railway Safety (CRS), for another 286 rkm. The agency has a 100 Day target for electrification of 1,816 rkm.

IR has been ramping up electrification work across its network, with steep targets set for the current financial year.

Following is the list of sections planned to be completed this year by CORE in various zones.
