Indian Railways, the life line of India, is taking the lead in reducing the nation’s dependence on petroleum-based energy by rapid electrification of railway tracks. In recent years, the Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE) has contributed the majority of total electrified sections of Indian Railway.
The Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE) has been set up in 1979 under the Ministry of Railways with the main objective of electrification of railway tracks on Indian Railways. In order to electrify important railway routes for harnessing maximum benefits from their traffic potential, nine project units of Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE) are operational at Ahmedabad, Ambala, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Jaipur, Lucknow, Guwahati and Secunderabad.

In the Amrit Mahotsav year of Independence, the Central Railway Electrification Organization, Prayagraj has achieved an unprecedented achievement in the history of the CORE by electrifying 4276 route kilometers (RKM) in a financial year, breaking all its records so far. At the national level,Indian Railways has electrified 6366 route kilometers in the same period i.e. FY 2021-22, the highest ever in the history.

Indian Railways electrified 52,247 Route Kilometers (RKMs) till March 31, 2022 which is about 80% of the total broad-gauge network (65,141 RKMs) of Indian Railways. Out of a total of 52,247 Route Kilometers (RKMs), the Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE) has carried out electrification work of 41,191 Route Kilometers (RKMs) which is roughly 79% of the electrification work of the entire Indian Railways. The Central Organization for Railway Electrification (CORE) along with other organizations has planned to electrify entire broad-gauge network routes of Indian Railways by December 2023.The pace of electrification has gathered momentum in the last few years as since 2014, a record 30,446 RKM has been electrified against electrification of 3,874 RKM during 2007-14. Remarkably, out of the total 52,247 RKM electrified so far on pan India basis 50% has been electrified only during the last five years.
