In May 2016, the no. of tenders published through IREPS portal has been crossed over 10,00,000 (10 Lakhs). Till FY 2013-2014 this portal was majorly being used by Stores Department of Indian Railways for e-procurement of materials and that time about 1.1 Lakhs tenders per year was being published through this portal. After that, Engineering Departments, Medical Departments, Works Department, Depots and Division of Indian Railways also added to this portal for procurement of materials.

Once tender becomes closed for bidding then Railway Officials open the tender through this portal.
