Agreement between BMRCL and CRRC:

  • The contract between BMRCL and CRRC Nanjing Puzhen Co Ltd., signed in December 2019, encountered challenges, which led to delays in meeting the original deadlines.
  • To address the delay in the rolling stock supply, CRRC sought additional time and subsequently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Titagarh Rail Systems.
  • Under this MoU, Titagarh will manufacture the train sets at its state-of-the-art facility in Uttarpara.

Titagarh Role in the Agreement:

  • Under the agreement with BMRCL, Titagarh is responsible for producing 34 of the 36 train sets needed for the Yellow Line at its advanced manufacturing facility. Only two train sets, comprising 12 coaches, will be manufactured in China.
  • To meet the specific requirements of the project, Titagarh has established a dedicated stainless steel production line at its facility. Production began on May 18th, 2024, and the first train set is slated for delivery in August 2024.
