Freight customers should compensate for late arrival of goods train: Piyush Goyal

Piyush Goyal, Minister of Railways and Commerce & Industry congratulated the DFCCIL team for completing the 500 km of Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) and said, “Just like IRCTC, which pays compensation for delays in its Tejas trains, railways freight customers should be compensated for late arrival of goods trains and emphasised for time-tabled goods train run on DFCCIL. Indian Railways should run freight trains in convoys for maximum utilisation of the path and increasing the average speed of freight trains.”
DFCCIL has completed the 500 km of DFC out of the goal of 991 km by March 2020. He continues, “DFC has the impact to transform the railways sector. It is necessary to have separate tracks for freight and for passengers to ensure faster movement of both.”
