Direct Train Service To Start From Himachal Pradesh to Haridwar Is Launching Soon

The Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting and Youth and Sports Affairs, Shri Anurag Singh Thakur, announced the expansion of rail services from Una Himachal to Haridwar in a major step intended to improve connectivity and simplify tourism. 

Anurag Thakur stated how much the people in the area will benefit from this choice. “I am happy to inform you that the extension of the Una Himachal-Saharanpur MEMU, which used to run from Una to Saharanpur, has been approved by the Railway Minister,” he stated. Now that this train is running from Una to Haridwar, people will have excellent travel options.

It is expected that the Una Himachal-Saharanpur MEMU train’s expansion to Haridwar will greatly enhance passenger travel options. As the Central member of Himachal Pradesh and the Hamirpur parliamentary position, Thakur emphasized the significance of Haridwar as a major religious destination, especially for pilgrims from Himachal Pradesh.

Anurag Thakur further described a number of the Modi government’s projects, including large expenditures on railway infrastructure. He highlighted that the government’s commitment to enhancing connectivity and promoting economic growth in the state can be seen by the approval of Rs 1838 crore for railway expansion in Himachal Pradesh for the fiscal year 2023–2024. 

“The government is working seriously on everything,” he stated, “from building new infrastructure to operating new trains.” For Himachal Pradesh’s fiscal year 2023–2024, railway expansion has been approved for Rs 1838 crore.

The budget for 2023–2024 has approved investments of Rs 1000 crore for the strategically significant Bhanupalli–Bilaspur–Beri railway line, Rs 450 crore for the Chandigarh–Baddi railway line, and Rs 452 crore for the Nangal–Talwara railway line.

The Rs 1838 crore that has been approved for railway expansion is 17 times more than what was approved between 2009 and 2014 under the UPA. Currently, the state is working on four projects totalling Rs19556 crore and spanning 258 km.
