Railways in India, 2021 Market Study – IR Expected to Increase Focus on Freight, to Make Up for Losses Incurred from COVID-19 Passenger Train Interruptions – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Railways in India 2021: Sector Analysis, Impact of COVID-19, Market Opportunities and Outlook" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The National Infrastructure Pipeline envisages a planned capital investment of over Rs 13 trillion for the railways sector by 2024-25.

IR has a target to complete over 17,000 km of new line, doubling and gauge conversion works by 2023-24.

The railway sector has proven to be a key contributor in India's response to the COVID-19 crisis. It played a critical role in addressing supply chain challenges during the lockdown when other modes of transport came to a halt.

While several projects continue to face challenges due to difficulties in labour mobilisation and procurement of specialised equipment, work on IR's mega infrastructure projects such as 100 percent electrification are continuing as per schedule.

Going forward, IR is expected to increase its focus on the freight segment to make up for the losses incurred due to suspension of passenger trains. In addition, the sector is also looking to tap new sources of funding including private investment for faster infrastructure development.
