800 km of the Dedicated Rail Freight Corridor to be opened this year

Around 800 km of the Dedicated Rail Freight Corridor is expected to open this financial year, and the remaining stretch of 1,500 km is likely to be commissioned next year.

Quoting an official source, a BusinessLine report said the project is only 50 per cent complete in terms of civil and electrical work.

It however said the percentage progress does not mean the project cannot be completed by next year, as a lot of time was taken for project preparation.

“Against its earlier plan to open the entire network at one go, the Railways has now decided to open it in phases,” added the report, quoting the source further.
