Electrification of Railway Lines in North-Eastern Region

Electrification of New Jalpaiguri-New Bongaigaon-Guwahati rail line is a sanctioned work in North Eastern region. Electrification of New Jalpaiguri-Guwahati rail line is a part of Barauni-Katihar-Guwahati including Katihar-Barsoi, a sanctioned Railway electrification project, for which adequate budget provisions have been kept during 2011-12. The work of electrification between Barauni-New Jalpaguri-Guwahati is planned for completion during 12th Five Year Plan as the electrification from New Jalpaiguri to Guwahati will only be useful after the electrification of Barabanki-Gorakhpur-Barauni-New Jalpaiguri, on which the work is already in progress.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Bharatsinh Solanki in written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today
