The first portion of the railways’ long-awaited dedicated freight corridor (DFC) will become operational by March 2018 between Ateli and Phulera. This will be a 190-km double track route — a total of 380-km track length — on the Western DFC, and the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCIL) has already committed this to the railway ministry.

In addition, around 500-600 km of additional track length will be operational by financial year 2018-19, according to a DFCCIL official. The official, however, did not name the 

regions as they are still to be committed to the railway ministry.

DFCCIL, a special purpose vehicle of the railways, has been entrusted to develop six DFCs across the country, of which, the Eastern DFC and the Western DFC have been taken up on priority basis with funding assistance from World Bank and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), respectively.
