The Indian Railways is in the process of converting diesel locomotives to electric locomotives. Zonal Railways is completing this work in stages. The important thing to note is that train speeds increase after switching from diesel to electric traction. At the same time, because of electric traction, the total duration of the journey will be reduced.
The North Western Railway is taking important steps in this direction, which is causing changes in the operation of certain trains. According to the North Western Railway, the operating time of certain stations along the Varanasi-Jodhpur-Varanasi rail service has changed due to the work of switching from diesel to electric traction.
