1785 South Eastern Railway Apprentice Online Form 2018 Post vacancy - South Eastern Railway 1About South Eastern Railway:

South Eastern Railway had its humble origin in Chhatisgarh State Railway way back in 1882 comprising of a Metre Gauge (MG) railway line from Nagpur to Rajnandgaon(149 miles) with its HQ at Nagpur. The construction of the line was prompted by a desire of the then Govt. of Central province to provide quick
transportation of food grain from the Chhatisgarh region to other parts as a step to prevent famine. The Bengal Nagpur Railway Company, popularly known as BNR after its formation in 1887 took over Chhatisgarh State Railway. It converted the MG line into Broad Gauge and extended it to Asansol in the erstwhile East Indian Railway (EIR). By 1891 BNR embraced within its fold the entire main line from Nagpur to Sini via Bilaspur and further to Asansol via Purulia as well as the extended Katni‐ Umaria line upto Bilaspur. The Sini‐Calcutta line extended upto Cuttack was opened for traffic in 1899 and in 1901 BNR took over the line from Cuttack to Visakhapatnam under East Coast railway which was then a State railway. The headquarter of BNR was built at Garden Reach, Kolkata in 1908 and shifted from Nagpur. The growth story of BNR continued and the Raipur‐Vizianagaram link was completed in 1931. The BNR company was brought under the Govt. of India control in 1944. The Narrow gauge (NG) line from Naupada to Parlakhimndi of the Paralakhimndi State railways and the NG line from Rupsa to Baripada of the Mayurbhanj State railways that were a part of the company were merged with the Govt. owned BNR in 1950.
