Doubling of Jagdalpur-Koraput Railway line

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval for doubling of Jagdalpur-Koraput section railway line of 110.22 km with a completion cost of Rs.1839.02 crore.

Doubling of this line will greatly ease the ever increasing freight traffic between these sections thereby increasing the revenue of Railways. The project is likely to be completed in the next seven years during 12th and 13th Plan period.

Koraput district of Odisha and Bastar district of Chhattisgarh will be benefited through this project.


The approved doubling from Jagdalpur to Koraput traverses entirely through the States of Odisha and Chhattisgarh and is necessitated in view of the demand of increasing goods traffic over a period of time due to increase in production of goods and minerals in the vast catchment and consequent transportation requirement.
