South East Central Railway
In recognition to persistent public demands, a new Railway Zone, with its headquarters at Bilaspur, was inaugurated by Hon'ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Atal Bihari Bajpai on 20th September 1998.
It was a pleasant coincidence that the new Railway Zone was dedicated to nation by Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Prime Minister, on 05th April 2003.
Development of railways in the region served by the present South East Central Railway has passed through many phases over the last about 125 years. It is the highest revenue generating railway zone in India among 17 zones.
