SummaryAnticipating problems related to land acquisition in West Bengal, the Railways might take a preemptive step of pushing by a couple of years the deadline for completion of its ambitious 3,300-km-long dedicated freight corridor project.

the rail ministry, has acquired approximately 8,000 hectares of land over nine states and 61 districts in a span of less than three years without any major upheaval. The speed has been spurred by the fact that land acquisition is one of the preconditions for funds from the World Bank and Japan Industrial Cooperation Agency (JICA), the agencies funding the eastern and western corridors, respectively.
