This has been possible with a customer centric approach adopted throughout the zone as well as due to concerted efforts in marketing the railway schemes and products by the Business Development Units set up in all the three Divisions of SWR.  

It is notable that Railways has emerged as a ‘transporter of choice’ for the automobile industry enabling safe, timely, damage-free, reliable and environment-friendly transport.

In the entire year 2335 extra coaches were provided to facilitate berths for waitlisted passengers. Four new trains were introduced, two trains extended and frequency of two trains was increased. 116 trains were speeded up, duly saving 2816 minutes of journey time. 06 pairs of trains have been upgraded to superfast express trains. 10 rakes were converted from conventional ICF type to LHB coaches improving safety and comfort. Based o­n special requests received, a total of 13 FTR specials were run and 49 FTR coaches were attached o­n owning basis.  

In FY 2022-23, total number of passengers carried is 150.34 million, which is the highest ever and a record in itself.
