ECR pins hope on Bansal for completion of projects

The greatest benefit of these factories is that they would open a new era of economic development in the state. Employment opportunities would be created for people in the state. Railways have major factories at Jamalpur, Chittaranjan (West Bengal) and Varanasi. Barring Varanasi, the other two factories have no ancillary support. Incidentally, all the proposed factories in Bihar will have full ancillary support, sources said.

East Central Railway (ECR) has pinned hopes on railway minister Pawan Bansal for the early completion of railway projects worth about Rs 35,000 crore being carried out in Bihar.

These projects, which were sanctioned during the tenures of two former railway ministers from Bihar – Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad – are being delayed mainly due to paucity of funds or lack of initiative by the Railway Board.

With the change of guard in the railway ministry sometime back, ECR hopes Bansal would do justice with the pending railway projects in the state.

According to ECR GM B P Khare, the zone got an allocation of about Rs 1,500 crore in the current fiscal year for the railway projects in Bihar.

It needs about Rs 12,000 crore to expedite completion of these projects.

Khare maintained that the ECR has been carrying out railway projects with the resources available with the zone. He said efforts were still on to complete major railway projects within the stipulated period.
