To improve the freight traffic, Mohanty stressed upon joint cooperation and mutual understanding between various agencies of the Central and State Governments and with Industries, Ports & Corporate agencies. This will benefit various Stake Holders and Railways.
He stressed on increasing line capacity and speeding up doubling and tripling projects. He spoke on to speed up Business Development Units (BDUs) activities to bring Railways closer to industry and trade in order to increase Railway’s share in the transportation.
To attract new Traffic, Mohanty advised officials to interact frequently with trade and industries to know about the existing transportation patterns and also to attract more traffic to Railways. Apart from this, Business Development Units (BDUs) should explore ways to increase miscellaneous non-bulk goods traffic, along with strengthening Railway’s share in traditional commodities being carried at present.
