New Delhi: The railway ministry will very soon float a global tender to procure rails, Union Railway minister Piyush Goyal said, on Thursday.

Goyal said,“I have diverted all available tracks to track renewal so that we can make the existing tracks safer. We are looking to go in for global procurement of rail tracks…this will help fast track the doubling of lines and new projects.”

More Information:

  • Currently, SAIL (Steel Authority of India) supplies tracks to the railways as per an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding).
  • However, SAIL has committed to supply 11.45 lakh tonne rails for the year 2017-18.
  • Goyal said,“There is no limit to safety expenditure. Safety will be the priority for Indian Railways. I have also categorised pedestrian foot-over bridges, platforms, entry and exit points as safety items. I have turned around 100 year old tradition which used to consider all of this as amenities.”
