Priority to critical rail links to carry coal

The new Union government will accord high priority to implementation of three critical rail links, a move that will ensure transportation of 300 million tonnes (MT) of additional coal amid shortages faced in the country. The three rail corridors are: Tori-Shivpuri-Kathotia in North Karanpura, Jharkhand; Bhupdeopur-Korichhaapar to Mand Raigadh mines in Chhattisgarh; and Barpali-Jharsuguda in IB Valley, Odisha, which are under different phases of development.

With demand and supply gap continuously widening, the ministry will also streamline procedures for environment and forest clearance by adopting online processing of applications.
