Railway plans Rs.3,000-cr yards upgrade

    Railway yards upgrade
    In its quest to build smart yards, the Indian Railway has decided to invest Rs.3,000 crore to construct smart yards in order to mechanize maintenance and repair work of rakes, ending a century-old practice of manual proceedings. According to the proposal, 40 of the 100 yards that the national carrier has, would be automated and mechanized at an average cost of around Rs.70-75 crore each. To start with, yards at Mughalsarai and Tughlakabad will be made smart yards. It may be recalled that on an average, around 10,000 rakes are inspected manually every month by groups of 4-30 employees, spending as much as six hours per train, Railway Board member-rolling stock Ravindra Gupta mentioned the plan for smart yards at an international rail conference recently. With automation, capacity of maintenance will increase from 10,000 to 15,000 rakes per month the move would also ensure safety of wagons avoiding accidents due to human errors.
