Metro Railway has o­nce again put up outstanding performancesin ensuring huge amount of Non Fare Revenue (NFR) in the just concluded 2023-24 financial year.From 1st April, 2023 to 31st March, 2024, NFR earnings of Kolkata Metro have stood at Rs. 43.56 crores, surpassing 2022-23’s figure of Rs. 36.33 crores. In March, 2024 itself Metro has earned Rs 3.44 crores as NFR.Following the guidelines of Railway Board, Metro Railway, in spite of being o­ne of the smallest zones of Indian Railways, has been able to show remarkable results in its effort to increase Non-Fare Revenue earnings in the just concluded fiscal.With such improved figures, Kolkata Metro has again registered itself as o­ne of the major Railway zones to achieve this result.

Kolkata Metro, being o­ne of the smallest zones of Indian Railways, mainly depends o­n passenger earnings. In order to increase its revenue, innovative approaches and meticulous planning have been adopted for improving NFR earnings substantially. By virtue of such endeavour, corporate houses could be roped in branding Kolkata Metro premises and putting up displays, stalls, kiosks, digital initiatives in Metro Railway.Such concerted efforts of Metro authorities combined with co-operation of Corporate Houses have resulted in ensuring such remarkable performance.

With new Metro Corridors getting opened and more such innovative plans being conceptualized, it is expected that in the present financial year i.e.2024-25 too, Metro will be able to surpass all expectations and end the year with flying colours. More Corporate bigwigs have also expressed their keenness to work with Metro Railway for achieving a greater height.

Shri P Uday Kumar Reddy, General Manager, Metro Railway has expressed his satisfaction as Metro has been able to show such a performance. He has expressed his hope that in this fiscal too Metro will be able to fulfil the expectations of Railway Board.
