With the land acquisition in final stages, the work on the Chandigarh to Baddi Railway line will be started soon.

Haryana government has started the process of transfer of government land to railways and negotiations will private land owners will start soon,” he said.
The physical execution of railway line will be started immediately after land acquisitions proceedings are completed in both state, he added.
With nearly 2,000 industrial units located in the Baddi-Barotiwala-Nalagarh industrial area, the rail link is a dire necessity and its significance has enhanced after the Container Corporation of India had set up an inland freight station, said he.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
