Agartala: July 26. The Northeast Frontier Railway has contemplating to set up two  Gati Shakti Multi Cargo Terminal in Sabroom and Sekerkote of Tripura.

In a press release, NFR said to achieve the goals set out in PM Gati Shakti framework, a master circular on “Policy for Management of Railway land” which includes provisions for leasing of railway land for cargo related activities, public infrastructure, railway exclusives use, etc. has been issued on 04th October of 2022.

“Railway land can be leased for cargo related projects/facilities for period up to 35 years at annual lease charges of 1.5% of market value of land by transparent methods of competitive bidding. The revised railway land management policies will enable integrated development of infrastructure. A master circular related to development of Gati Shakti Multi-Modal Cargo Terminals Railway has been issued on December 06 of last year. Since such commercial policies are open-ended programmes continuing on railways, consequential development of cargo terminals coupled with generation of sizeable employment is also likely to be a continuous process in future”, it said.

Under the jurisdiction of N. F. Railway two of Gati Shakti Multi Cargo Terminal have already been commissioned while works are in progress for Gati Shakti Multi Cargo Terminal at six locations.

“N. F. Railway is planning to set up Gati Shakti Multi Cargo Terminal at Sairang (Mizoram), Sabroom (Tripura) and Sekerkote (Tripura) under Lumding division”, it reads.

Commissioning of the Gati Shakti Multi Cargo Terminals will make the cargo handling and transportation by using roadways, waterways and railways much faster and in an efficient and cost-effective manner. PM Gati Shakti initiative aims for seamless and simplified coordinated infrastructure projects.
