Strengthening railway infrastructure and boosting connectivity in North East

As Railways continue to be the most important medium of mass transportation – being the most preferred and economically viable mode of transportation of goods - and the lifeline of connectivity, it is, therefore, imperative that Railway connectivity in the region be improved and strengthened, providing better, safer and faster links with the rest of the country.

This is vital for growth and development of Assam as well as North Eastern region as a whole.This calls for some immediate measures for improving connectivity and the services provided by the Railways in Assam and the North East as a whole. At present, there is only one railway line linking Assam and the rest of the country. This line passes through Assam–West Bengal border at Srirampur in Kokrajhar district. To ensure better rail connectivity between the North East and the rest of the country, it is essential that there be an alternative Railway line through this stretch.
