The government has plans to commission the first 56 km stretch of the much-awaited Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) project in March next year. The double line section will be commissioned with an investment of Rs 1,000 crore. This is funded by Indian Railways´ equity. The stretch on the Eastern arm of the project will divert largely coal freight from existing rail network.
