**New Car in Garage**
After purchasing the 12000HP WAG12 'Prima' loco from Alstom (France) under 'Make in India' project, IR is now a proud owner of one of the most powerful locomotives in the world. These locos will be used in Freight as of now. But at the present circumstances how much justified the step of purchasing this loco (from foreign country which has cost us around Rupees Twenty Thousand Crore) is in your opinion?
**As per the latest report CLW has successfully rolled out 9000HP WAG9. Also DLW has already successfully
made 10000HP WAGC3 and 12000HP WAG11.

Totally justified. it was really needed
Not at all needed at present. existing fleet of G5. G7 and G9 are doing just fine
Upgrade was needed. but Indian orginizations like CLW. DLW. BHEL etc should have been given the contract of the R&D instead of importing
This loco is too powerful for our need. instead cheaper and bit less powerful (8000-9000HP) locos should have been considered for import
