The Railway Board has sharply increased electrification target for 2019-20 to 10,319 kilometres. This is a steep 68% higher than the target for 2018-19 of 6,125 km.

As of mid-March 2019, approximately 3,700 km of the 6,125 km target for 2018-19 has been commissioned. The rest is either under process, or has been moved to the targets for 2019-20

In 2018, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs had approved a proposal for electrification of balance un-electrified BG routes of Indian Railways (IR) comprising of 108 sections covering 13,675 route kilometres (16,540 track kilometres) at a cost of Rs.12,134.50 crore. This electrification is expected to be completed by 2021-22.

The major trunk routes on IR network have already been electrified and are operational. Considering the requirement for seamless operation of rail traffic across the network, it was felt necessary that the bottlenecks created by the need to change traction are done away with.

The proposed electrification plan, mainly for missing links and last mile connectivity, will increase operational efficiency and enhance line capacity besides improving average speeds of trains.

  1. Which year the electrification of Nanded Nijamaabad Secunderabad route is going to be completecompleted.

  2. Sir,
    When will Ferozepur-Jalandhar, Ferozpur- Fazilka-Abohar and Ferozpur-Hussainiwala Sections will be electrified ?

    1. Every one silent on this section. No new trains, no punctuality, no enhancement. Though passenger footfall is high.

  3. Here it has showed that SOLAPUR Gulbarga electrification is going to take place this year but I didn’t find movement at stations

  4. Why Western Rly gets highest No of kms of Electrification.? Actually all trains from / to Gujrat should be completely withdrawn immediately, then only other states can progress. Otherwise no hopes for other states to get progessed. .

  5. Dhond Manmad , Manmad Aurangabad Electrification was to be completed in year 2019-20, but so far no much progress found.Further the work of Aurangabad -Nizamabad Electrification work time period for the same thing nothing 😒.It is good that the works of Purna – Akola & Adilabad-Mudhkhed being in progress.
