The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has approved the doubling of Nimach-Ratlam railway line involving ₹1,184.67 crore investment. It will be completed in four years. Additional freight traffic of 5.67 million ton per annum from 1st year will increase to about 9.45 million ton per annum in 11th year.

The total length of doubling of line is 132.92 km and the current utilization capacity of Nimach-Ratlam section is up to 145.6% with maintenance blocks. The project route section has become over-saturated well above optimum capacity even without a maintenance block. The main inward freight traffic carried is coal for captive power plants of cement companies. Traffic on the section will further increase on account of new cement industries coming up due to the availability of huge deposits of cement grade limestone in Nimach - Chittorgarh area. Doubling of Nimach-Ratlam section will increase the capacity of section as such more goods and passenger trains can be introduced on the system. Due to the proximity of cement industries, additional freight traffic of 5.67 million ton per annum is expected from 1st year which is likely to increase to 9.45 million ton per annum in the 11th year. This will provide easy connectivity as well as result in socio-economic development. The project will also boost tourism as many historical sites including the Fort of Unchagarh are situated in the project area.
