Rail corridor planned for Rampia coal block
After planning a common rail corridor for the Angul-Talcher-Chhendipada belt, the Odisha government has decided to develop a similar infrastructure facility in the Rampia coal block. The common rail corridor is proposed to be developed with equity participation from Odisha Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (Idco) and Mahanadi Coalfields Ltd (MCL). MCL has been appointed as the lead member to formulate the common alignment plan of the corridor in such a manner that there is minimal human displacement and less diversion of forest land.
