Indian Railways signed an MoU for laying the Karad-Chiplun railway line, crossing the Sahyadri mountain range. The state´s ambitious project aims to connect the western coast with the central part of the country. The state government has promoted investments in private ports in the Konkan region, with three companies partaking in the projects. These ports will have railway connectivity to keep transportation costs low. In all, there are nine railway projects, for which the state will partner with private firms.
