Agartala-Kolkata train service via Bangladesh set to operate

Chief Minister Manik Saha announced that Tripura's railway connectivity is set to receive a significant enhancement with the operationalisation of the train service from Agartala to Kolkata via Bangladesh. He mentioned the successful trial run of the proposed Agartala and Gangasagar (Bangladesh) route, establishing a direct connection between Agartala and Kolkata through Bangladesh.

During the flagging off ceremony of the Agartala-Deoghar Express train with LHB coaches at Agartala railway station, Saha expressed gratitude towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi for fulfilling the promise of providing HIRA (highways, I-way, railway, and airway) infrastructure to the northeastern state.

Additionally, Rs 930 million has been allocated for the conversion of three railway stations? Dharmanagar, Udaipur, and Kumarghat ? into Amrit Bharat stations.

He acknowledged the transformation in the state's transportation landscape, noting that around 18 express and local trains are currently serving the people of Tripura.
