(a)  In order to improve rail connectivity in the North Eastern Region, 15 New lines and 6 Doubling projects having a total length of 1,881 km have been taken up at a total cost of `70,066 crore which are in different stages of planning/ sanction/ execution. Completion of these projects will bring down the disparities within the N.E. Region. Out of 15 new lines, Bogibeel Bridge over river Brahmaputra along with linking lines project (73 km) has been commissioned and inaugurated by Hon’ble Prime Minister on 25.12.2018. 

(b) & (c)  All Northeast State Capitals (8 States namely Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Manipur, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Sikkim) are planned to be connected by broad gauge rail link. 

State Capitals - Guwahati (Assam), Agartala (Tripura) and Itanagar (Arunachal Pradesh) - have already been connected by broad gauge rail network. 

Harmuti – Naharlagun (21.75 km) new broad gauge line was commissioned in February, 2015. (Naharlagun is at a distance of 10 km from Itanagar, the capital city of Arunachal Pradesh). 

Kumarghat-Agartala (109 km) metre gauge section had been converted into broad gauge and commissioned in July, 2016. Thus, the capital of Tripura has been connected by broad gauge rail network. 

The works have been taken up to connect the remaining capitals - Shillong (Meghalaya), Imphal (Manipur), Kohima (Nagaland) (project is upto Zubza which is approx. 17 km from Kohima), Aizawl (Mizoram) (rail connectivity is upto Sairang which is approx. 18 km from Aizawl) and Gangtok (Sikkim) (project is upto Rangpo which is 40 km from Gangtok).
