New online registration service for vendors: Railways

The Railways on Tuesday said vendors interested in developing products and new technologies for the sector can now register with the national transporter althrough the year.

The Research Designs and Standards Organisation (RDSO) of the Railways has launched a new online vendor registration system which will ensure that the process is completed within defined timelines, it said in a statement.

For the first time, the RDSO has also invited expressions of interest (EOI) for all the 600 plus items -- such as automatic twist locks, components for diesel locomotives and anti-friction coatings -- required by the sector and kept the window open with no timelines to enable wider participation.

"Now vendors can register for any of the items 365 days of the year," the ministry statement said. Earlier, vendors approached the Railways depending on the sector's requirements.

This would help small and medium enterprises and lead to job creation, it added.

Vendors can now also view their application and registration status online on the RDSO website, it said.

The new system provides public access to information, expeditious process completion with defined timelines, simplification of procedures and round-the-year services, it said.
