Indian Railways (IR) is Asia’s largest and world’s second largest network under one management, with a separate Ministry and its own annual budget. The network carries about 20 million Passengers and 2 metric tonnes freight every day on the route of 64,015 km (2009-10).

Although key business operations are freight and passenger, IR is also engaged in several allied services including parcel, catering and production units.

Over the years, IR has predominantly become a bulk freight carrier, accounting for about 94 percent of the freight revenue. ” market research reports ”
