Statistics of Railway Personnel are available under this catalog. Staff are all employees who are paid directly by the railway administration (except casual labour). Data includes Total number of Staff for Group C, Group D, Department wise, RPSF, Railway Board and other Railway offices.
Catalog contains data related to the railway network i.e Route Length, Track Kilometres , Route Kilometres etc.. Route Kilometers is the distance of each gauge owned by a railway including its worked lines treated as a single line. Kilometrage of double, treble, etc. Tracks, crossing at stations and sidings are to be excluded. Double and Multiple Route Kilometres represents route kilometres on the system having double or multiple lines.
Suburban traffic is the passenger traffic moving in metropolitan areas (at present in Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai) where special concession rates for season tickets are applicable. Passenger traffic of Kolkata Metro is also treated as Suburban traffic. Non-Suburban traffic represents passenger traffic other than suburban traffic. Passengers originating means number of passengers booked from each gauge of the railway. Passenger kilometre is the unit of measure of passenger traffic corresponding to the conveyance of a passenger over a distance of one kilometre.
Data of Operating Statistics is available under this catalog. Train kilometer is the unit of measure of distance which corresponds to the movement of a train over one kilometer. Passenger Train Kilometrage is to include the kilometrage of : (a) trains scheduled to convey passengers including passenger proportion of mixed or other traffic booked at coaching rates, and (b)empty trains running to provide necessary stock for passenger including passenger proportion of mixed and other coaching traffic.
Ineffective Rolling Stocks are those Rolling Stocks i.e. engines, carriages and wagons which are under repair or awaiting repair in workshops.
Revenue earning traffic is the traffic conveyed by rail and for which commercial tariffs are applied i.e., for transportation of which the railway is paid by either the consignor or the consignee. Non-revenue traffic is traffic conveyed by rail for the working of the railway and for which commercial tariffs are not charged. Tonnes originating is This includes tonnes of all traffic originating on each gauge, whether it terminates on the gauge itself or on some other gauge of the home line, or on other railways.
Engine usage statistics throw adequate light on most economic and judicious use of engines. The basic aim to compile this statistics is to increase the number of productive engine hours and to increase the average daily kilometrage by making the most intensive and judicious use of the engines. (i) Engine kilometres per day per engine in use - This figure is arrived at by dividing the total engine kilometres run by the average number of engines used multiplied by the number of days. This unit indicates the kilometrage run daily by an engine in use.
Total gross traffic earnings represent true earnings of Railways in an accounting period whether or not actually realized. Gross traffic earnings include all earnings from passenger, other coaching, goods & sundry. Suspense is the difference between true earnings/working expenses in an accounting period whether or not actually realized/disbursed and earnings/working expenses Gross traffic receipts represent earnings of Railways actually realized during an accounting period.

Data of Average speed of goods train has been provided here. This unit is worked out by dividing the figure of goods train kilometers by the goods train engine hours. The time occupied in halts at enroute stations and shunting during the run is included. The train kilometre indicates the amount of productive work done and the train engine hours are the unit cost for train working. A combination of these two units, i.e. train kilometres per train engine hours is a good index of efficiency in train working. Any increase in the speeds of trains indicates improvement in train operation.
