Finally, ICF has churned out a new rake. Rake #207 185 -188 was despatched for CR on 27th February 2010, on the 47th day after the previous rake was despatched. It remains to be seen whether this is just a one off despatch or the regular one-rake-every-five-to-seven-days routine will start from now.
As expected, ICF will be falling short of the production target for financial year 2009 – 2010. The target was to manufacture 48 rakes in 2009-10. Till February 2010, 33 rakes have been manufactured. Thus, in order to meet the production target, 15 rakes will have to be despatched in March, which is impossible.
