 Mechanical Department - Matunga Workshop
 

 
 

The Carriage Workshop, Matunga was set up in 1915 as a repair workshop for broad gauge and narrow gauge coaches and wagons of the erstwhile Great Indian Peninsular (GIP) Railway.  The workshop covers a triangular piece of land/area of 35 hectares, including a covered area of about 11 hectares, skirted by the Central Railway suburban corridors on the east and the Western Railway corridors on the west.   

The workshop now carries out Periodical Overhaul (POH) and heavy corrosion repairs of main line as well as EMU coaches. Last year ie in 2009-10, a total of 3182 coaches consisting of 2207 Non AC, 341 AC coaches and 634 EMU coaches were attended. For the year 2010-11 target is 1884 Non AC, 360AC and 720 EMU coaches.

The workshop is certified with ISO 9001/2000 and ISO 14001/1996 since 2001 & 2002 respectively. It was last recertified for ISO 9001-2000 in 2007 & ISO 1400-2004 in 2008.

Now this workshop is going one step ahead to adopt Integrated Management System covering ISO: 9000, ISO: 14000 & ISO: 18000 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series). The system is likely to be implemented by July 2011.
