The Baramulla-Kupwara rail link project would be taken up under umbrella work by the Railways said the communication.

The demand for extension of rail link from Baramulla to Kupwara was forcefully projected by the Governor’s Administration before NITI Aayog CEO, Amitabh Kant during his visit to the Aspirational Districts of Baramulla and Kupwara last month.

Chief Secretary BVR Subrahmanyam said the Governor’s Administration has also made a strong case for Jammu-Rajouri-Poonch rail link and is expecting significant forward movement on this important connectivity project soon.
