The Centre has finally met a long pending demand by including the Qadian-Beas New Line (39.68 km) in the supplementary demand for grants for railways that was introduced on Tuesday during the ongoing winter session of Parliament. An estimate cost of Rs 205 crore has been proposed with the work scheduled to start immediately.
The project was first sanctioned in the pre-independence era during 1928-29 but Partition ensured that it never saw the light of day for over eight decades. At present, Qadian and Beas are connected through a 100-km long circuitous rail route via Amritsar and Batala.
