Indian Army conducts rail trials on Dedicated Freight Corridor

Must Read

Guwahati, June 15 (NKTV): The recently developed Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) by the Indian Railways provides faster movement of freight across the country; the Indian Army on Monday conducted a successful trial by moving a military train loaded with vehicles and equipment from New Rewari to New Phulera validating the efficacy of the DFC.

The trials were part of the “Whole of the Nation Approach” for optimising national resources and achieve seamless synergy among various ministries and departments.

Interactions by the Indian Army with all stakeholders including DFCCIL & Indian Railways will now assist in leveraging the DFC and allied infrastructure into the mobilisation matrix of Armed Forces. Development of infrastructure at certain locations to support mobilisation and trials to validate move of defence owned rolling stock on Roll On-Roll Off (RO-RO) service is being formalised and modalities are being evolved.
