New Delhi: The Railways’ production units have been asked to formulate a roadmap to achieve a three-fold increase in production by 2022.

This comes after Railways Minister Piyush Goyal held a meeting with the general managers of all the railway zones last month during which he emphasised the need for improving the transport output by 3 times by 2022.

More Information:

  • A letter to the general managers of all production units of the railways said,”It is needless to say that output of our production units has to increase substantially during this period to match the growth expectations.”
  • It said,”There is therefore, an urgent need for evaluating the performance of manufacturing facilities to assess their capability to ramp up production by almost three-times the present level with the existing workforce.”
  • One of the most significant increase is to take place in the production of LHB (Linke Hofmann Busch) coaches this year.
  • Officials said, but boosting production significantly requires a sharp increase in the present annual coach production target of 2,435 to 5,000 such coaches.

  • The directive to the production units also says that the plan should be such that it facilitates decisions that lead to the best usage of time, financial & human resources.
  • The plan, should be “workable” and should succeed by making suitable changes to the present processes, inducting technology and introducing a judicious mix of “make or buy matrix”, it said.
  • The directive said, it is therefore imperative that the production units of the Indian Railways embark on the journey of a three-fold increase with a clear strategy.
  • The letter said,”You are requested to formulate a ‘production ramp-up’ road map with absolute clarity of resources required with cost and time line and communicate to board latest by January 31, 2018.”
