Despite slowdown, major turnaround by Central Railway

NAGPUR: Despite slowdown on industrial front, it is ‘Advantage Vidarbha’ in real sense for the Nagpur division of Central Railway, which has registered 31% growth in its revenue earnings, highest in the last five years.

“The economic situation is not so good, yet we achieved a loading of 28.49 mt (million tonnes) in 2012-13, almost touching the volume of 28.8 mt in 2007-08. The growth indicates that industrialization is picking up,” said divisional railway manager (DRM) Brijesh Dixit.
