There is no denying to the fact that the safety and reliability of Railway transportation system largely depends on efficient maintenance of Rolling stock or whatsoever. Such goal needs a scientific and efficient maintenance management and maintenance management depends on efficient supply chain management. Bangladesh Railway owns a big fleet of rolling stock, sophisticated and conventional and a vast organization is at work round the clock to look after them for optimum utility and efficient service for its users, for this reason proper maintenance is necessary. The main objective of this study is to identify the Compatibility of Bangladesh railway's locomotives spare parts current recoupment policy in present situation and assess efficiency and effectiveness of procurement function. The investigation particularly included determining the existing performance of procurement. Mainly Data was collected from primary sources from depot ledger card which maintain each spare part. While assessing the Compatibility of current recoupment policy of loco spare parts in terms of efficiency, effectiveness, screening out constraints and weakness and strategies to overcome the same. BR is a state owned service provider. It provides safe, comfortable and economic transport services to the passengers and thus government is paying Public Service Obligatory grant. The losses and declining operational performance is closely related with efficient and effective Maintenance Management of locomotives which can accomplish by efficient and effective procurement.
