It all depends on which Locomotive trains you regard.
WAP-4, WAP-1, WAg-5/6/7, WAM-4, and WCAM-1/2/3 all utilize DC series motor as the traction motors on mainline locomotives. These locos are believed to constitute more than 70% of a large piece of IR's locos.
Three phase induction are utilized as Traction motors by WAP-5/7 and WAG-9.
In the local areas, DC locals use DC type of motor while three-phase induction motors are used by the newer BHEL and Siemens.
In the diesel locos, three-phase induction motors are used by the EMD's such as WDP-4/4B/4D and WDG-4/4D whereas the alcos locomotives such as WDM-2/3A/3D/3F, WDG-3A WDP-1/3A uses the DC traction motors
