Telangana's First Kisan Rail Launched

The South Central Railway ran its first Kisan rail from Warangal in Telangana to Barasat in West Bengal, yesterday.
Hyderabad | 9th February 2021
In a sea of unhappy incidents surrounding the nation's agrarian community, a bright spot is the fact that the South Central Railway (SCR) ran its first Kisan rail in Telangana yesterday.

The special train, carrying 230 tonnes of dry turmeric in 10 parcel vans, ran from Warangal station to Sealdah's Barasat station, in West Bengal.

The move, one initiated by the Centre, has been introduced to help boost the income of the agrarian community by enabling it to find and access the most profitable markets for its products - it aims to boost the income of the farm sector, while providing a hassle-free, safe and fast transport service to the farmers.

To encourage the farmers to avail themselves of the service, the Ministry of Food Processing Industries announced the extension of a 50% tariff concession o­n the transportation of notified fruits and vegetables through the Kisan Rail trains, under "Operation Greens - TOP to Total".

Meanwhile, the Centre's standoff with the farmers protesting the three new farm Acts on the borders of the national capital continues. Many in Telangana have also extended their support to the agitating farmers.

There were a number of huge rallies and demonstrations organised across the state on February 6.
