Niti Aayog wants the rail­ways to pre­pare a plan sim­i­lar to Prad­han Mantri Gramin Sadak Yo­jana and Na­tional High­ways Devel­op­ment Pro­gramme to link dis­tricts which are not on rail map. “We need schemes like NHDP, PMGSY in Rail­ways also. Even to­day, some parts of North East and Odisha are not con­nected by rail net­work,” a se­nior gov­ern­ment of­fi­cial said. “Niti Aayog will be sug­gest­ing to Rail­ways to come up with a project re­port on the lines of PMGSY and NHDP. We would like to make this a na­tional pri­or­ity,” he added.
