RATIONALIZATION OF LUMP­SUM RATES FOR MERRY­GO­ROUND (MGR) SYSTEM

PURPOSE: –

Ø  In order to provide an economical and reliable alternative short lead traffic, a revise scheme with rationalized lump­sum ratesfor Merry­-Go­-Round has been formulated.

CONDITIONS : –

Ø  The MGR Terminals at both ends shall be privately owned.

Ø  Rail  track  between  the  two  terminals  will  be  provided  by  the  customer.

Ø  Railways willprovide locos, wagons, brake­-vans and other  rolling stock as per requirement for running of the rakes under  MGR system.

Ø  Terminals at both ends will operate round the clock.

Ø Lumpsum rates charged under the MGR System would depend upon the number of rakes loaded per day and the lead of traffic.

 BENEFITS :  –

Ø For  18  km  lead, the revised  MGR rates would be  around Rs.47 per  ton  (BOXN  wagons)  for  2-­3  trips  per  day  as  compared  to  road rates of Rs. 72 per ton for the same lead.

Ø Singareni  Collieries  Ltd.  had  committed  to  give  around  3­-4  million tonnes of additional traffic with the rationalized rates in  the next financial year.

Ø The rationalized rates shall come into force from 01.04.2016.
