“The projects are related to several important sectors like rail, road, oil and gas and urban development and housing,” it said.
The Prime Minister will dedicate to the nation the 173 km long double line electrified section between New Khurja – and New Rewari on Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) by flagging off goods trains from the two stations through video conferencing in Bulanshahr, said the release.
