Indo-Bangla rail project after polls

अगरतला Agartala (AGTL): Aiming to push the Indo-Bangla rail network, the Northeast Frontier Railway would request the state government to start land acquisition for the 15-km proposed project, sources in the NFR said here.

To inspect the progress of rail projects in Tripura, General Manager (Construction) of NFR RK Singh, accompanied by other NFR officials visited Nishchantpur, a border village in Sepahijala district on Monday.

After the inspection, he instructed the local NFR officials to keep in touch with the state government authority so that land acquisition could be expedited.

In course of Singh’s visit, it appeared that the ground alignment between Agartala rail station and Nishchantpur is uneven. Levelling of the uneven portion is required to make laying of track a smooth affair. It was not decided from where the huge quantity of mud required for the purpose, would be brought. Sources said land acquisition in the Bangladesh side – around 10 km – was completed in December last year.

“The Sepahijala district administration will undertake the land acquisition process after the Lok Sabha election,” said state Transport Secretary Kishore Ambuly here today.
