ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On 30 July 2009, the Ministry of Railways through Addendum No. 1 to Rates Circular No. 36 of 2009 increased the Distance based Charges on freight of iron ore that is to be exported and used in the production of iron and steel.
The Distance based Charge applicable on such iron ore transportation was earlier set at a rate ranging from "0%" to "125% of base freight rate" depending on the distance of transport. This additional charge has been increased to a rate ranging from "Rs. 200 per tonne" to "125% of base freight rate plus Rs. 200 per tonne".
The measure was initially meant to be in force from 6 August 2009 until 5 November 2009 but was later extended until March 2010, when it was increased further (see related measure).
