- IR is no longer led by Piyish Goyal, but the new RM is closely associated with Orissa & Patnaik led Orissa State Govt.
- We can hope that RM shall take personal interest in developing world-class rly stn for Bhubaneswar Smart city
- New Rly stn (south of Barang) shall be near to Cuttack ancient capital city & important commercial center. Many trains eastbound trains from BBS/Puri which taking shorter and faster route via naraj and bypassing Cuttack.
Orissa Govt should plan future expansion of BBS northwards so that the new smart station could become central station of BBS-Cuttack Metropolitan area in long run
