Narendra Modi to virtually re-launch cross-border rail route after 55 years

PM Modi is all set to reopen rail route between Haldibari in West Bengal and Chilahati in neighbouring Bangladesh after a gap of 55 years on December 17.

The railway line from Haldibari in Cooch Behar to Chilahati in northern Bangladesh has been defunct after rail links between India and then East Pakistan had snapped in 1965.

The distance between Haldibari railway station till the international border is 4.5 kilometres while that from Chilahati in Bangladesh till the zero point is around 7.5 kilometres.
