Jindal Steel and Power Limited
Adding to its order book portfolio, the Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL), in a recent cache has secured orders to supply about 88,000 tons of long wagons to the Tata–Aldesa joint venture (JV) for use in the Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor (EDFC). In order to ensure smooth supply of wagons, the JSPL will use its special freight train operator licence from the Indian Railways to transport the rails from its mother plant in Raigarh, Chhattisgarh to the project site where Tata-Aldesa is building more than 300 kilometer (km) of rail lines of the Eastern Freight Corridor between Khurja and Kanpur, after securing the project from the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCI).

According to the JPSL sources, the order in question is the first of its kind placed for supply of long rail panels of 260 metres to a company other than SAIL. Normally, single rail is only 13-metre long. JSPL wants to use this policy to lower the transportation cost for its products. JSPL decided to procure special wagons and place orders for three rakes as the Railways doesn't not have wagons to transport long rails. The design of these wagons has been approved by Research Design and Standards Organization and is said to be indigenous.
