ISHANAGAR (Metro Rail News): The segment of the North Central Railway has reached the landmark of 100% electrification. This accomplishment is noteworthy because it follows other Indian Railways divisions that have also succeeded in doing so. The Ministry of Railways shared a video on Twitter of a completely electric train on the North Central Railway’s newly electrified Khajuraho-Udaipura section passing through the Ishanagar Station.

The Ministry of Railways shared a video of the first electric train that was running on the newly-electrified section of the North Central Railway between Ishanagar and Udaipura stations. In a tweet, the Ministry of Railways mentioned, “Catch a glimpse of the first train with electric traction rushing past Ishanagar Railway Station on the newly electrified Khajuraho-Udaipura section. With the completion of electrification work on this section, North Central Railway is now 100% electrified.”

The North Central Railway is one of the 19 rail zones of Indian Railways. In total, there are 221 branch line stations and 202 mainline stations. The biggest railway station in the area is Kanpur Central. It has three divisions: the divisions for Allahabad, Jhansi, and New Agra.

A 41-kilometer, entirely electrified portion of the Eastern Railway’s network was finished. This project site was stretched on the Hansdiha-Godda section of the railway.

If the entire country’s electrical system is totally electric, the railway network will be carbon neutral by 2030, according to the official plan.
