The Indian Railway has big potential to develope goods transportation. In recent years, industrialisation and growing international trade along existing Eastern and Western Routes has led to the demand for additional capacity for rail freight transportation. To develope the freight traffic infratructure, the Government has designed an expansion drive in the form of Dedicated Freight Corridors (DFC). In the first phase, two corridors-the Western DFC (1504 route km) and Eastern DFC (Estimated 1856 route km)- with a total length of about 3360 route km were launched. Construction responsibility of DFCs is with Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India Limited.

The Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCIL) is a Special Purpose Vehicle set up under the administrative control of Ministry of Railways to undertake planning & development, mobilization of financial resources and construction, maintenance and operation of the Dedicated Freight Corridors.
