Unesco injects $5,33,332 in DHR network

    Darjeeling Himalayan Railway
    The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (DHR) is all set to receive a major conservation boost from the Indian Railways recently, signing a fund-in-trust agreement of $5,33,332 to build a Comprehensive Conservation Management Plan (CCMP) by UNESCO as the world body is keen to carry out a framework for an effective management system. Indian Railway has committed to do everything possible to perverse the priceless heritage of the DHR that was declared a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1999. While the CCMP for Darjeeling Himalayan Railway had actually commenced in April, 2016, once successful, it would be replicated in Nilgiri Mountain Railway and Kalka Shimla Railway as well. While Nilgiri Mountain Railway was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005, Kalka Shimla Railway was given the same status in 2008. The three together are called Unesco's Mountain Railways of India World Heritage Site, Railway Minister said.
