INDIAN RAILWAY PERMITS free transportation of RELIEF MATERIAL to Cyclone 'Gaja' affected districts of Tamil Nadu

INDIAN RAILWAY PERMITS free transportation of RELIEF MATERIAL to Cyclone 'Gaja' affected districts of Tamil Nadu


Indian Railway has now decided to permit inter-state and intra-state free transport for aid and relief material by coaching trains (Parcel van/VP/SLR etc) and goods trains, including in less than standard composition rakes, to Severe Cyclonic Storm/SCS ('Gaja') affected districts of Tamilnadu.

All Government organizations across the country can book relief material free of cost to affected districts of Tamilnadu. Other organizations, as deemed fit by Divisional Railway Managers, may also avail of this provision. However, it may be ensured that consignor/consignee is District Magistrate/ Deputy Commissioner in whose jurisdiction the dispatching/ receiving station is situated.

All such consignments in passenger carrying trains through parcel vans as well as intra-state coaching trains carrying relief material shall be covered under these guidelines of Free Transportation to Cyclone hit districts

The Divisions have been empowered to take decisions o­n further necessary action including attaching additional bogies/coaches/vans to various Tamilnadu bound trains till 10 December 2018 or till further orders whichever is earlier.
