Secunderabad : The South Central Railway( SCR) has pulled off the amazing job of shipping 3 crore litres of milk from Andhra Predesh's Renigunta to New Delhi during the covid19 pandemic.

Doodh Duronto Special, introduced during the lockdown period from Renigunta to Hazrat Nizamuddin to supply milk to the people of the nation's capital, crossed the 3 crore litres mark on Monday, according to SCR spokesman Ch. Rakesh.

"Transportation of milk from Renigunta to New Delhi plays an important role in balancing the milk supply across the nation," he added.

The milk was sourced by a National Dairy Development Board (NDDB) unit from more than 3,000 pooling points from across 13,000 villages in and around the state's Chittoor district.

Introduced on March 26, Doodh Duronto Specials plied on alternate days till July 15, when they started operating daily.

Each milk train has six tankers of 40,000 litres capacity each, totalling 2.4 lakh litres milk per train.

To reach the 3 crore litre milestone, the railway zone operated 126 trains, ferrying 751 tankers.

In addition to milk, the train, via Kacheguda in Hyderabad, also used to add some parcel vans, ferrying other commodities, transporting them to several other places.
