SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY, HUBBALLI DIVISION


 TRANSPORTS MAIZE TO BANGLADESH


On two consecutive days, the South Western Railway, Hubballi Division has loaded maize from Bagalkot and Vijayapura to Darshana in Bangladesh. o­n 20.11.2020, 2477 tonnes of Maize were loaded in 42 BCN wagons from Bagalkot.   On 21.11.2020, 2484 tonnes of Maize were loaded in 42 BCN wagons from Vijayapura.  


This has opened up new avenue for export of agricultural produce from this part of the region. It has helped the farmers and merchants to market their produce beyond the country border. 


The freight transportation from Bagalkot and Vijayapura to Darshana in Bangladesh has helped the railways in earning a revenue of Rs. 74.07 lakh and Rs. 78.63 lakh respectively. However, the cost of transportation by Railways is very cheap and economical as compared to other modes of transport.
