All round development of Nagaon Railway Station demanded by citizens

In a memorandum to the General Manager, N.F.Railway, Maligaon, the citizens and the passengers of Nagaon demanded for all round development including infrastructure development of the Nagaon Railway Station. In the 11 points long memorandum, the citizens demanded immediate arrangement for a shuttle train from Silghat to Chaparmukh, considering the heavy load of passengers. The shuttle train should be named as KALIABAR PASSENGER The 2067 UP Janasatabdi Express train should be linked with 808 Silghat to Guwahati down train at Chaparmuk junction. The passengers also demanded two additional trains from Silghat to Guwahati and Guwahati to Silghat with the names, SREEMANTA SANKAR DEV passenger and Kaziranga passenger respectively..

Moreover the Chaparmukh to Silghat railway line should be extended up to Tezpur Rangapara (North) from which the passengers of both Assam and Arunachal Pradesh will be benefited. The one more line should be extended from Jakhalabandha to Sibsagar town via Numoligarh,Dergaon and Jorhat town for which the passengers of Upper Assam will be benefited as mentioned in their demand. Priority should be given to make the Nagaon railway station in the category of Model Railway Station with immediate renovation of the platform as per B.G.norms. It is to mention that the present platform of the station is not constructed properly for which ladies or handicapped passengers face difficulties to get in the train.

Beside all, the citizens also demanded for immediate steps to against the illegal constructions of business centers and small huts on the railway properties. People belonging to different categories have been occupying about 90% of landed property of N.F.Railway. It is always noticed that some anti-social activities are going on in such temporary huts, as a result, it has been spoiling the entire environment of the surrounding areas. The UTS and PRS system should be introduced in the Nagaon Railway Station and the Puranigudam, Samaguri, Salana, Jakhalabadha ,Bebjia, Phulaguri and Raha stations should be improved into three lines with proper signal system, as demanded.
