The history of railway electrification in India dates back to the 1920s when the first electric train operated between Bombay VT and Kurla Harbour in February 1925. Following India's independence, the government recognised the need to reduce reliance on imported oil and improve air quality, leading to a focused initiative to electrify the railways. In the 1950s, Project Office for Railway Electrification (PORE) - now renamed as the Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE) - was established to oversee and manage the electrification program. In recent years, there has been significant progress in railway electrification. The government has set an ambitious target of electrifying the entire broad-gauge network by 2023. The Central Railway has accomplished a significant milestone by achieving 100% electrification on all its Broad Gauge routes. This accelerated pace reflects the commitment towards sustainable transportation and reducing the environmental impact of the railways in India. Railway electrification not only offers environmental benefits but also enables faster travel times, high-speed rail services, improved reliability, and enhanced passenger experiences. It paves the way for a more efficient, sustainable, and advanced rail transportation system. Here we share some of the useful insights into how railway electrification enables high-speed rail services and improve travel times:
