Senior railway officials were also present at the meeting.

“Work sites of the ongoing Agartala-Akhaura international rail connectivity project were inspected by GM/NFR Anshul Gupta to check progress. This project once completed will further boost the people-to-people contact between India and Bangladesh through railways,” the NFR said in a Facebook post.

The 10-km Agartala-Gangasagar (Bangladesh) railway project, commonly known as Indo-Bangla railway link, is expected to be completed by March 2023, a senior railway official said.

“Construction works at Nischintapur, corridor of Indo-Bangla rail link, have been completed. Even sub construction of the elevated corridor has been done but work on the Bangladesh side is tardy leading to delay in execution of the project,” he said.
