Niti Wants Rlys to Bring all Districts under its Network
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.
