Press Release No. 324, SUGAR TRANSPORTED FROM BADAMI TO ASSAM AND WEST BENGAL

दक्षिण पश्चिम रेलवे/ SOUTH WESTERN RAILWAY

प्रेस विज्ञप्ति/ Press Release No. 324  Dt: 23.12.2020      

SUGAR TRANSPORTED FROM BADAMI TO ASSAM AND WEST BENGAL

Today, South Western Railway, Hubballi Division has loaded 2594 tonnes of Sugar from  Badami to 2  destinations, Azara in Assam (2892 Km) and Rangapani in West Bengal (2473 Km).

Badami station was not hitherto opened  for  handling freight traffic.  Now it has been opened for handling bagged consignments by utilizing the underutilized platform area at Badami station.  It has helped the Sugar Industries to market their product   from Karnataka to other parts of the country.

The freight transportation from Badami to Azara and Rangapani has helped the railways in earning a revenue of Rs. 75 lakhs. However, the cost of transportation by Railways is very cheap and economical as compared to other modes of transport.

Shri Ajay Kumar Singh, General Manager, SWR said that with sustained marketing efforts of Business Development Unit, under the guidance of Divisional Railway Manager  Shri Arvind Malkhede, the Division could capture Sugar traffic successfully from Badami station.  This has mutually benefitted both customers and Railways. He advised the Rail Users especially the farmers and Merchants handling transportation of agricultural produce and other essential commodities to utilise Railways for easy and hassle-free transportation of their goods. Railway is the fastest, safest and cheapest mode of transport, he added.
