Bangalore: In a chat with media, P.Dwarakanath, CMD, BEML, shares that the honourable minister has presented a balanced budget. Considering what he could hear so far, Dwarakanath said he have five areas of great interest for BEML.
The number one related to EMUs (electrical multiple units), where BEML have a very strong presence. The second point relates to high speed trains. As you know, BEML have the requisite base and the technology and experience and what it need to have is more investment which BEML is quite capable of doing and BEML have plans to enter this line, because of very strong technical base to take up this project.
The third aspect relates to safety. The maintenance of tracks is of great importance where BEML have got plans and have everything in place to take up track maintenance equipment.
The next point is about urban transport, where BEML is very strong player in urban transport and have plans to take up light rail vehicles for tier two cities. Last but not the least is the issue of mainline coaches. So new trains are coming up and there is a focus on replacement for the sake of safety.
