The Central Railway Information Technology Centre previously known as EDP Centre was formed on 18th Nov 1967 with the installation of IBM-1401 Computer System based on AUTOCODER programming.

Later all the applications were converted to COBOL, using ICIM-2904 mainframe computer which used replaceable Hard disks and Spool Tape reader, which was later replaced with more advanced Mainframe computers.

At present all COBOL applications are processed on UNIX based HCL-HP 9000 with 2 E-45 servers and DATACAP/ Data-capture software of Dataflex Company was installed on 29th March 1996. Till date, majority of data entry work of IT Centre is done in DATACAP software. All applications were completely switched over to the new system w.e.f. 01st Aug 1996.

At the IT Centre, centralized processing of applications like AFRES (account branch major application), PRIME (pay roll & related applications), MMIS (Material Management information system for Stores department), Traffic Management (traffic accounting) and many web based applications developed in-house at the centre.
