Share this on :
The inaugural run of South India’s first and the country’s second Kisan Rail between Anantapur and New Delhi was flagged off on 9 September 2020. 
 
The inaugural run was flagged off by Narendra Singh Tomar, Union Minister of Agriculture & Farmer Welfare, Rural Development and Panchayati Raj, and Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. 
 
Kisan train will run between Anantapur in Guntakal Division of the South Central Railway and Adarsh Nagar in Delhi. 
 
More than 80 percent of the 58 lakh tonne of fruits and vegetables in the district is marketed out of the state, particularly to the north Indian states of Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana, among others. 
 
Kisan Rail will help in strengthening agricultural economy. The state’s popular fruits will now be able to reach other areas in the country easily. Kisan Udaan service will also be started soon. 
 
Kisan Rail train service between Anantapur and New Delhi will cover a distance of 2,150 km in 40 hours. The rake is loaded with 14 parcel vans – four vans load meant for Nagpur and another 10 vans load for Adarsh Nagar – totalling 332 tonne. 
 
Kisan Rail and KisanUdaan had been announced in the 2020 budget so that farm produce is able to be transported all over the country in less time. 
 
On 7 August 2020, the first Kisan Rail was flagged off between Devlali in Maharashtra and Danapur in Bihar as a weekly service, which was later made bi-weekly due to increasing demand.
