First railway station in Mizoram soon: Northeast Frontier Railway
Mizoram would soon get its railway station after the Union government in its Budget for the year 2021-22 allocated ₹ 1, 000 crore for the Bairabi–Sairang project in the state.
According to sources, the Bairabi–Sairang railway line project would be completed by March 2023.
“Better rail connectivity will lead to economic development not only for the people of the Mizoram but also for the entire North East region,” a statement issued by NFR stated.
Traders of the state will bring items of daily consumption and construction materials in a much cheaper, cost-effective and eco-friendly way.
“Farmers of the state will send their produce to the wider market of the various states at a cheaper rate and time-bound manner,” the statement further added.
