The new railway lines linking Tripura, India and Bangladesh are being built and completed by the end of the year and operational by early the following year. The Chief Public Relations Officer, Sabyasachi De, who is coordinating and managing the project, said that the new rail line project will help boost the trade (export & import) from the northeastern region as soon as the project is completed.

He further added that the Indian Railways is making large contributions to the Act East Policy & Neighborhood First Policy by completing various new railway line projects connecting neighboring countries. Another critical project that is almost completed is the Agartala-Akhaura international connection rail line project between India and Bangladesh. This line includes one major bridge and three minor bridges and links the international immigration station at Nischintapur which will help goods interchange between India and Bangladesh.
