HARYANA (Metro Rail News): Indian Railways has achieved a major milestone by completing the electrification of the entire railway network in Haryana state. The existing broad gauge network of Haryana, which spans 1,701 route kilometers, is now 100% electrified. The announcement was made by Union Railways Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Twitter, who congratulated the people of Haryana on their achievement.

Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, also took to Twitter to congratulate the state of Haryana on achieving 100% rail electrification. He emphasized that this accomplishment would bring many benefits to the state.

According to the press release, “Haryana’s existing Broad Gauge network, covering a distance of 1,701 Route Kilometers, has been fully electrified, resulting in several benefits such as reduced line haul cost (about 2.5 times lower), increased capacity for hauling heavier loads, improved sectional capacity, and reduced operating and maintenance cost for electric locomotives. Furthermore, electrification has also made transportation more energy-efficient and eco-friendly, leading to a reduction in the country’s dependence on imported crude oil and foreign exchange savings.”

Haryana state’s territory falls under the jurisdiction of the Northern, North Central, and North Western Railways. Some of the major railway stations in Haryana are Panipat, Ambala, Kurukshetra, Gurgaon, Hisar Junction, Rewari Junction, Rohtak Junction, and Bhiwani. These railway stations offer convenient connectivity to various regions of the state and other major cities in the country. Also, several prestigious trains pass through Haryana state, including the Kalka Shatabdi Express, Kalka Mail, Himalayan Queen, Paschim Express, Golden Temple Mail, and Kalinga Utkal Express. These trains provide easy access to various parts of the state, making travel more convenient for passengers.

On the whole, the completion of the electrification of the railway network in Haryana state is a major achievement that will have numerous benefits for the state and its people. The move will provide a more energy-efficient and eco-friendly mode of transportation while saving on costs and reducing dependence on imported crude oil.
