The National Rail Plan lays down the road map for capacity expansion of the railway network by 2030 to cater to growth up to 2050. It envisages the creation of a future ready railway system that is able to not only meet the passenger demand but also increase the modal share of railways in freight to 40-45% from the present level of 26-27%. As per the National Rail Plan, the freight ecosystem is expected to grow from the present level of 4700 MT to 8200 by 2030. At present the railway capacity is barely able to carry 1220 MT which is around 26-27% of the modal share. The Plan provides a pipeline of projects, which on completion will increase railway capacity to capture 45% of freight traffic.
