Respected Sir ,
The Centre assured in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 to set up a rail coach factory at Kazipet. Even after repeated requests by the Activitists in last four years, the Centre did not come forward to set up the coach factory. In this backdrop, the state is acting its own to get a coach factory and succeeded.The Warangal M.P has Deaf and Dumb.
Kazipet Railway Station – Started in 1904
Kazipet, a small town in Warangal and a member of the Tri-city group (Warangal–Hanamkonda-Kazipet) is known for a whole lot of good things. It is a city known to host a huge crowd of religiously diverse inhabitants. It is also regarded as an important educational town hosting several professional as well as primary educational institutes.
However, Kazipet’s biggest claim to fame is the Kazipet Railway Junction. Built in 1904, the Kazipet railway junction has crossed its 100th anniversary and is still going strong. In all probability it was built under the rule of the 6th Nizam Mahbub Ali Khan or Asaf Jah VI as he was also called. The Nizam’s government also patronized the construction of several other stations namely, Secunderabad, Kachiguda, Nampally, and Begumpet.
Categorized under the South Central Railway sector, the Kazipet Railway station today has emerged as a major hub connecting all sectors from North to South and from East to West. It is one of the essential threads in the Indian Railways loom that is used to weave the nation into one single fabric. The Kazipet station is also considered to be one of the busiest stations with more than 100 trains crossing its tracks on a daily basis.
Everyday approximately around 20,000 passengers travel by trains from Kazipet Railway Station.
The Kazipet Railway yard has also been equipped to serve as a locomotive maintenance center. It initially started maintenance activities only for diesel locomotives. The yard housed around 27 WDM-2C locomotives. In the Indian context the nomenclature of locomotive models indicated the gauge type (W=Broad gauge), the motive power (D= diesel), job type (M= capable of carrying both goods and passenger) and horsepower it generates. The WDM -2C models housed in the Kazipet were the original models in that particular locomotive class.
In 2006, the Kazipet Railway Maintenance section inaugurated their services for Electric locomotive engines. In its capacity of an electric locomotive service center it brought in most of the WAG-7 locomotive types from the yard in Lallaguda, a small suburb in Secunderabad. The Centre has also recently received over 100 new units.
The station houses a total of 3 platforms. Two of these are dedicated to cater to outbound trains. All trains traveling to Hyderabad leave from these platforms. Platform 1 is the only platform which caters to inbound trains. All trains entering Kazipet from Hyderabad arrive at this platform.
The growing importance of Railways in the lifestyle of Kazipet inhabitants, has led the place to gradually emerge as a railway colony. The primary mode of employment in the area is as Railway employees. Some or the other member in every household seems to draw its wages from the Indian Railways. This has therefore led to the association of like minded individuals with common interests to flourish. Almost 70% of the families living in Kazipet belong to Kazipet Railway Employees.
The existing demands of setting up of Coach Repair Factory and upgradation of Kazipet Railway Station to Kazipet Railway Division are still pending since the time of PV Narasimha Rao.
. Jayesh Ranjan, principal secretary (industries), said on 18th October 2017 that “they will sign an MoU on the coach factory on 26th October 2017 .” However, he refused to disclose further on the project and merely said that industries minister KT Rama Rao would make the big announcement on it in a couple of days but was in vain.
When the factory takes shape, it will not only attract huge investments to the state but also provide huge direct and indirect employment. Besides, the state government will get huge revenues in the form of taxes. As the Centre assured to set up the coach factory at Kazipet, the state may consider another location for the private coach factory, the sources said.
We once again request you to please expedite the matter without any delay and oblige.


With Regards, your's sincerely,
