Welcome to Centre for Advanced Maintenance Technology (CAMTECH)



Role of CAMTECH Directorate:

The objective of CAMTECH is to upgrade maintenance technologies and methodologies and achieve improvement in productivity and performance of all railway assets and manpower which inter alia would cover reliability, availability for use, utilization and efficiency. CAMTECH carries out in depth studies of maintenance problems, identifies and help Zonal Railways to implement possible solutions, imparts training, prepares Maintenance Manuals, Handbooks, Technical instructions, guidelines, pamphlets, video films for maintenance of all four technical departments of Indian Railways. This literature is made available both on the CAMTECH website and in the printed format as well. Dissemination of the knowledge and information is done by interactive Seminars & Workshops organised and coordinated by CAMTECH on various maintenance related subjects in association with OEMs, RDSO, Zonal railways and domain experts.
