    Govt. hastens $1-bn rail to Chabahar port
    The government has reaffirmed its commitment and seriousness for the construction of the $1.6 billion rail link to Chabahar port and that the project will be taken up expeditiously, said sources, adding that the planning is for the next 10-15 years. India has also promised to remove hurdles to fast track the project, which will connect the port on the southern coast of the Gulf nation to the eastern city of Zahedan on the border with Afghanistan. The ministry has ordered to take up the matter with IRCON (IRCON International Ltd to which the contact was given on priority and sort out the matter). India plans to develop the Chabahar port, which would give it access to landlocked Afghanistan and energy-rich Central Asia through its Jawaharlal Nehru and Kandla ports on the west coast, circumventing Pakistan. Apart from this, India and Iran also inked 12 agreements including one for India's IRCON to build the 500-km railway line as part of a transit corridor to Afghanistan.
