NFR losing huge revenue

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, April 26 - Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) is losing revenue to the tune of Rs 1.5 crore to Rs 2 crore every day on account of the suspension of passenger train services.

�Passenger train services have remained suspended since the nationwide lockdown was enforced. Our zone�s average daily earnings from passenger traffic is Rs 1.5 crore to Rs 2 crore. That revenue is not coming, on account of the suspension of services,� an NFR official told this newspaper.

Asked about the total quantum of loss suffered by NFR during the last one month due to suspension of passenger train services, the official said, �We have not done the calculation. This is not the time to calculate loss or profit. Priority is now on helping the government to bring the COVID-19 pandemic under control. Our freight services are operating and we are working to ensure an adequate supply of essentials to the people of this region. Calculation of loss or profit will be done later.
