With a vision of providing eco-friendly, faster, and energy-efficient modes of transportation, Indian Railways is marching ahead towards 100% electrification of Broad Gauge tracks. During the calendar year 2023, Indian Railways has achieved 6,577 Route Kilometers of electrification. The Total Broad Gauge (BG) network of 61,508 Route Kms has been electrified upto December ’2023 which is 93.83 % of the total Broad Gauge route (65,556 RKMs) of Indian Railways. Until 2014, 21,801 KM of broad gauge network was electrified.

Railway Electrification offers benefits like:

  1. Reduced operating cost.
  2. Haulage of heavier freight trains and longer passenger trains due to higher haulage capacity of Electric Locomotives; leading to increased throughput.
  3. Increased sectional capacity by eliminating detention on account of traction change.
  4. Environment-friendly mode of transport.
  5. Reduced dependence on imported crude oil thereby saving precious foreign currency.
