New Delhi, 11th March 2023: The Railway Board set Central Railway’s non-fare revenue objective at 81.66 crores, the highest amount allocated to a Zone Railway for FY 2022–23.
However, the goal was met 22 days earlier than expected. With earnings of 82.64 crores, more than twice as much as the revenue of 40.41 crores from the previous year, Central Railway has successfully met its goal for the first time.
The successful execution of the new e-auction policy mandated by the Railway Board is primarily responsible for this growth.
The 2022–23 fiscal year saw the highest earnings of any zone.
Some of the notable work done during this period:
* Improvements to the waiting areas in Nashik, Bhusaval, Nagpur, Ajni, Lokmanya Tilak Terminal, and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus.
• The discovery of 37 new hoarding locations in Mumbai Division’s suburbs.
