“The land processing process is in progress in both the states. The negotiations in Himachal Pradesh have been completed and rates sent to Himachal Pradesh government for approval. 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.

At present there are three rail motor cars available for operations at World Heritage Kalka Shimla railways line out of which one rail motor car is being utilized at present as passenger service and other rail motor cars are utilized during peak seasons to meet the growing demand of services mainly during tourist seasons.
