Central Railside Warehouse Company merged with Central Warehouse Corporation

  • Taking another step towards implementing the direction of “Minimum Government Maximum Governance” given by the Prime Minister, promoting ease of doing business and bringing private sector efficiencies in Public Sector Undertakings, the Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved to merge and transfer all assets, liabilities, rights and obligations of ‘Central Railside Warehouse Company Limited’ (CRWC), a Mini-Ratna Category-II Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSE) incorporated under the Companies Act, 1956 in 2007 with its holding enterprise ‘Central Warehousing Corporation’ (CWC).
  • The merger will unify similar functions of both the companies (i.e., warehousing, handling, transportation) through a single administration to promote efficiency, optimum capacity utilization, transparency, accountability, ensure financial savings and leverage railway siding for new warehousing capacities.
  • The capacity utilization of RWCs will also improve as there will be potential for CWCs to store commodities other than commodities of cement, fertilizer, sugar, salt and soda being stored presently.
  • The merger will facilitate the setting up of at least 50 more Railside warehouses near the goods-shed locations.
  • This is likely to generate employment opportunities equivalent to 36,500 mandays for skilled workers and 9,12,500 mandays for unskilled workers. The merger is expected to be completed within 8 months of the date of decision.
