IR to connect 27 more ports

01 Jun 2022

Indian Railways (IR) is preparing to lay a 3,000-km rail line connecting 27 ports at Rs.1 tn, with the goal of increasing cargo flow. Survey work is underway to connect these ports with rail lines to all operating ports in the country. MoPSW currently recognises 226 ports, of which 69 are operating. 
 The railway network connects 29 significant and busy ports out of the 69 operating ports. The majority of the surviving functioning ports are near railway terminals.
