Indian Railways authorities dedicated the new Hansdiha-Godda rail line in Jharkhand and also flagged off the Godda- New Delhi Humsafar special train. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal flagged off the projects through video conferencing on Thursday, April 8, along with Railway Board Chairman, Suneet Sharma. The new railway line will boost the transportation facility along the network and will be cost-effective for faster movement of commodities. According to the Railway Minister, the new project has attracted an investment of Rs 550 crore, so far.
With the swift pace of transportation of goods, the railway line will provide a boost to the socio-economic growth of Dumka and Godda region in the state of Jharkhand. It is likely to generate employment opportunities and Kisan Rail services may also be started through the rail line in the future. This will allow the transportation of farmer’s produce from this area to other regions.
