On the auspicious occasion of 74th Republic day of our beloved country, I extend my best wishes to all members of railway fraternity and families o­n the North Central Railway. Let us also recall with gratitude role of our forefathers in creating a vibrant and vast democratic republic which has grown from strength to strength over the years. It is the occasion to review our past performances to enable us to know about our achievements and goals toward fulfillment of dreams of our constitution-makers.
North Central Railway, since its inception in year 2003, has emerged as an important constituent of Indian railways. In spite of NCR not being a loading railway, we have registered a 5% increase in originating loading and 22% growth in throughput.  A new record level of throughput achieved o­n any single day o­n 17th January, 2023 over NCR i.e 36141 wagons (714 trains), earlier best was 35723 wagons o­n 15.01.2022. The originating freight loading in our freight earnings in current financial year till December, 2022 grew by 6.70% in comparison to same period of last year.  Our Passenger and Sundry Earnings have also grown by astounding 60.37% and 58.67% respectively over same period of last year. Even the ticket checking earning is 75.5 % higher than last year. We have already crossed the annual target of scrap disposal in the month of January itself & achieved the earning of Rs 200.83 crores upto 12th January 2023. 
NCR has also earned ever best Rs. 113.33 Crores by way-leave and siding charges. We have not o­nly improved earning but have also enhanced our efficiency to curtail expenditure. Our Solar plants are also performing best in Indian Railways,  9.63 million units of energy has been generated through them and saved the energy bill to the tune of almost Rs. 3.91 crores along with saving 8200 Metric Tonnes carbon emission upto the third quarter of current financial year. During the current year, monetary savings to the tune of Rs. 177.59 crores were achieved, by use of reduction in diesel under wire, regenerative braking in 3-phase electric locos, shutting down of diesel locos when not in use, solar energy generation and reduction in non-traction energy consumption. After introduction of 03 LHB rakes this year, a total of 29 such rakes have been made HOG compliant, thus saving diesel of more than Rs. 19 Crores.
Five new pair of train services for passengers have been started this year for passengers of our zone along with temporarily adding 122 extra coaches to different trains.
