Sub : Survey to identify un-serviceable/scrappable

P.Way material for disposal


            Scrap disposal to generate necessary credits for released material has been an area of concern over the years with Railways often not being able to meet the targets for such disposal.  As you are aware, the credits so realised are taken as a reduction in gross expenditure.  Lesser realisation of credits results in Railways pressing for higher Net allotments for meeting with the gross Plan expenditure. 

2.         Western Railway has recently shown an initiative where a survey through ISAs and ASVs was carried out for identifying scrap.  The survey revealed that more than 1 lakh mt of scrappable P.Way material valuing approximately Rs.246 cr was lying on their system.  The issue was brought to the notice of the GM and action initiated through PCE and COS for scrapping the unserviceable rails and other P.Way material and consequent disposal of the scrap. 

3.         All Railways are requested to initiate similar surveys on the lines of WR for disposal of the identified un-serviceable material. 

4.         Other such initiatives undertaken by the Railways which may prove useful for zones may also be reported through the MCDO to the FC.
