India to supply 18 Meter Gauge Diesel Electric Locomotives to Myanmar
12 March 2016 Current Affairs: India will supply 18 metre-gauge diesel-electric locomotives to Myanmar to help the country bolster its rail transportation system. A contract to this effect was signed on March 4, 2016 at Naypyitaw, Myanmar, between RITES, an Indian public sector undertaking under the railway ministry and Myanmar Railways. Minister of Myanmar rail transportation, U Nyan Than Aung, and Indian ambassador Gautam Mukhopadhaya were present on the occasion. The supply contract is a vital project being funded under an existing line of credit extended to Myanmar by India. These locomotives will be manufactured by Diesel Locomotive Works, Varanasi, with several modern features like microprocessor controls, fuel-efficient engine and ergonomic cab design. RITES chairman Rajeev Mehrotra said the organisation is making all efforts to augment export of rolling stock manufactured at railway production units.
