freight corridor Amritsar. Railways have dismissed the suggestion of Dedicated Freight Corridor to Amritsar in Parliamentary Standing Committee of Trade Affairs. In which the committee had said that the corridor should be extended to Amritsar.Railways have made it clear that Eastern Dated Freight Corridor is being implemented from West Bengal’s Danakuni to Ludhiana city of Punjab. This decision has been taken following the study of traffic and other levels at this route.
Indeed, in the case of Corridor from Amritsar, the committee suggested that expansion of corridor would benefit the entrepreneurs doing business between India and Pakistan through Attari Border. If Pakistan revises the negative list, then the number of items to be exported to Pakistan will be increased which will increase the traffic on the railway line. It is important to take a decision keeping in mind the future requirements.
Quoting terrorism in the Majha region, the committee said that this area was much affected by terrorism, so it is the duty of the government to be focused more on the development of this area so that the people can grow economically more.

According to the capacity, they are inadequate according to the future needs. Especially when the corridor will begin for use, the demand will increase. Therefore, on the Railway, the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India Ltd should ensure that the multi-modal logistics hub is built on capacity as per requirement of Corridor.
