Mission.: To make IRFC one of the leading financial services companies in the country, for raising funds from the capital markets at competitive cost for augmenting Railway Plan finances, duly ensuring that the Corporation makes optimum profits from its operations.

Vision: To be the pivotal and premier financial services company for the development of Rail Transport Sector while maintaining its symbiotic relationship with the Ministry of Railways.

Mandate: In order to further strengthen the Organization Structure for coping up with the additional workload due to manifold increase the annual borrowing target mandated by MOR and significant increase in the compliance requirements in the aftermath of implementation of the New Companies Act, SEBI (LODR) Guidelines, migration to IND-AS and introduction of GST, the Company got a Manpower study conducted by a reputed Management Institute. Based on the report submitted by the Institute, the Company has approached the Govt. of India, Ministry of Railways for approving the proposed increase in manpower strength.

Summary of Activities: IR carries out various activities that are essentially uneconomic in nature, where it is either not able to recover the costs (capital investments/operating costs) it incurs to deliver such services, or ends up foregoing revenues. Such activities, termed by IR as Social Service Obligations, include concessional tariffs for a few passenger segments or essential commodities and services in uneconomical train routes. While the assessment of actual losses to meet social service obligations requires a scientific study, the estimation of such losses from IR for the fiscal year 201617 is ₹296.3 billion (US$4.3 billion)
