The Mission Electrification of Indian Railways has received a major boost over the South Central Railway, with around 750 track kms on its rail network getting electrified during the financial year 2020-21. Importantly, out of this total, 612 track kms have been electrified in the new sections, while around 64 track kms of double lines and 69 track kms of third lines have also been electrified. This achievement is particularly remarkable as the works were carried across the Zone, inspite of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pace of electrification continued right upto the last week of the financial year with the electrification works being carried out for 182 track kms across the three states in SCR. While, Umdanagar  Falaknama and Vikarabad Kohir sections were electrified in Telanagana during this period, Tenali Repalle and kavalai Ulawapadu (third line) sections were electrified in Andhra Pradesh and Akola  Lohad sections were electrified in Maharashtra.
