The Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor project and the rail coach refurbishing factory in Sonipat will boost the state's economy and logistics industry, as well as create jobs, according to Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who virtually laid the groundwork for the rail corridor project at a Jan Utthan rally in Faridabad on November 27.

He called the projects, which are part of the government's Aatmanirbhar Bharat campaign, "a gift from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the people of Haryana," and said the state and federal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) governments had fueled the state's growth.

Laid the foundation stone of orbital rail corridor

“The people of Haryana will be happy to know that the coaches for the Vande Bharat trains will be built at the rail coach factory in Sonipat. The orbital rail corridor will facilitate the operation of superfast trains such as Shatabdi Express between Gurugram and Chandigarh bypassing Delhi,” said the home minister, adding that the present BJP government has the distinction of completing projects on time.

Besides laying the foundation stone of the Haryana Orbital Rail Corridor Project, which is projected to cost about ₹5,618 crore, the home minister inaugurated the rail coach refurbishment factory at Barhi in Sonipat district, developed at a cost of ₹590 crore. He also inaugurated the country’s longest elevated railway track at Rohtak, built at a cost of ₹315.40 crore. The fourth project he inaugurated was the Haryana police residential complex at Bhondsi, where 576 flats have been constructed at a cost of ₹106 crore.

Other state progress

Speaking of the state's progress under Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, the home minister stated that Haryana has become the first smoke-free state because every household has a gas stove. According to him, it also ranks second in the country in terms of food grain production and milk production.

Haryana has also ranked first in sports, according to Shah. He also stated that Haryana has made significant progress in the fields of export, software production, and manufacturing over the last eight years.

In her address to the gathering, Union Minister of Railways and Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw stated that the rail coach refurbishment factory will create a huge ecosystem because it will involve over 800 vendors. He also stated that the orbital rail project would improve connectivity and logistics throughout the state.

According to Vaishnaw, the annual budgetary allocation for Haryana has been increased from 350 crore to 1,400 crore under the current government. He also stated that seven railway stations in Haryana will be upgraded to world-class standards. A tender for a world-class railway station in Faridabad has been awarded at a cost of 262 crore. Similarly, the master plan for the construction of world-class railway stations in Gurugram, Chandigarh, Ambala Cantt, Karnal, Kurukshetra and Panipat is being prepared, said Vaishnaw.
