Manoj Sinha, the lieutenant governor of Jammu and Kashmir, stated on Sunday that the Amrit Bharat Station Scheme’s redevelopment of three regional railway stations will improve connectivity and simplify people’s journey
“I think that a society’s ability to connect by rail is essential. According to Sinha, a railway line not only improves communication with other areas but also boosts economic development, raises the level of living, and forges a new course for the place in question.After Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday lay the cornerstone for the redevelopment of 508 railway stations across the country at a cost of Rs 24,470 crores, Sinha was speaking at a celebration at Budgam Railway Station.
Under the Amrit Bharat Station Scheme in JK, Jammu Tawi, Udhampur, and Budgam railway stations will be renovated.
According to the Lt. Governor, India is undergoing rail projects in Kashmir Valley of historic size under the leadership of the Prime Minister.
“Kashmir and Kanyakumari will be connected by the end of this fiscal year. It will link the valley to all significant commercial hubs across the nation, said Sinha.
The LG stated that the Baramulla-Banihal Railway Line, New Baramulla-Uri, Awantipora-Shopian, Sopore-Kupwara, and Anantnag-Bijbehara-Pahalgam Rail Lines have all been doubled thanks to approval from the Railway Board.
The additional networks, he continued, “will improve rail connectivity in the valley once approved.”
