The railway is one of the multiple freight corridors. For the railway line, broad gauge will be used. The Eastern DFC will have double tracks and will be electrified. The section from Ludhiana in Punjab to Khurja (Bulandshahr) in Uttar Pradesh will be single line electrified due to a lack of space. This freight corridor will cover a total distance of 1839 km. This corridor will also pass through Dadri, which is the origin point of the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor and which will serve as a junction.
