Railway Minister Miss Mamata Banerjee and Steel Minister Mr. Bir Bhadra Singha announced that Rail and SAIL will jointly set up a factory for manufacturing of rail compartments at Andal, barely 05 Km from Durgapur. It will be a equal joint venture.
Both the ministers were present in the Andal Gear Rail Ground to announce this intention. Though no time frame has been set up as to when the actual work for the said project will start but everyone irrespective of his or her personal party colour lauded the announcement.
This is indeed a great news for the people of Durgapur. If the project materializes then it will definitely act as a booster dose for the fast developing city of Durgapur. One should not forget that it is at Andal only where work for Aerodrome construction has recently been started.
