The Indian government has sanctioned around Rs.1, 000 crore for a 15-km Bangladesh-India railway project.
The Indian central government on Saturday communicated to Tripura that it has sanctioned Rs 580 crore to lay the rail tracks and acquire required land in Tripura, the Economic Times reported on Sunday quoting Indian Transport Secretary Samarjit Bhowmik. The external affairs ministry earlier agreed to provide Rs 400 crore to lay the new tracks and to acquire land in Bangladeshi territory.
The 1,650-km distance between Agartala and Kolkata would be reduced to 515 km once the rail track is constructed through Bangladesh.      ?UNB
