DFC achieves milestone of operating 0.10 million trains

In a notable development, 0.10 million trains have been operated on the dedicated freight corridor (DFC) as of May 26, 2023. The first train on the DFC network was flagged off on December 12, 2020. 55,332 trains have been operated on the eastern dedicated freight corridor while 44,658 trains have operated on the western dedicated freight corridor. As of May 26, 2023, 2,089 rkm, i.e 73.5 per cent of the DFC has been commissioned. The freight infrastructure capacity augmentation by DFC is important in achieving the Indian Railways’ target of 3000 million tonne freight loading by 2030.
