The Railways will start a Gati Shakti Express Cargo service for delivery of goods. The special train for this purpose will be called the Rail Post Gati Shakti Express. This will be a joint project of the Indian Railways and India Post. The project aims to provide door-to-door parcel service for common Indian residents.
Under the joint parcel project (JPP), Indian Railways has partnered with Indian Postal services for door step collection and delivery of cargo. Thus the last mile delivery services will be taken up by Indian Post. Indian Railways will move these Gati Shakti cargo on a timetabled basis using semi-high speed trains. In order to attract cargo to this service, as an initial offer, Indian Railways is offering a 20% discount as compared to the road fairs for moving cargo. More details on the project will be announced during the budget 2023.
