Average railway freight rate per metric ton in India FY 2006-FY 2016 The Indian railway network is the third largest in the world. With focused attention from the government and investments in improving infrastructure, the railway sector is recognized as one of the largest railway systems under single management. Apart from carrying over ten thousand passengers per day, more than seven thousand freight trains play their part in carrying over three million metric tons of freight per day. In financial year 2016, the average freight rate per metric ton across the country was 1.63 Indian rupees per kilometer.
Growth of the sector

National level investments have played an important part for the tremendous growth of the sector. In 2008, the country spent almost five U.S. dollars per thousand dollars of GDP on rail infrastructure. The capital expenditures on the sector have also gradually increased over the years. The capital expenditure value of the railway sector was 20 billion U.S. dollars in financial year 2018.

Revenue and future

Revenue in the sector has witnessed steady growth over the years. The revenue of freight rail transport across the nation was projected to be close to 2.5 billion U.S. dollars in financial year 2018. With increasing participation from public as well as private sector firms, both domestic and international, the freight traffic is likely to grow rapidly, possibly resulting in more employment opportunities and revenue generation from the industry.
