On the other hand extension work of rail track from Agatala via Udaipur to Sabroom is going on in Southern part of the state. Besides preliminary work of railway connectivity between Agartala and Akhaura started here. It is expected that Tripura will be connected with international railway after conversion of 398 Km. line from Lamding to Agartala M.G. line to B.G.

Meanwhile Transport minister Manik Dey expressed resentment for depriving Tripura from Railway Division. According to the minister the board rejected to set up railway division in the state after sending letter to Railway Board with demand to setting up Railway Division 3 times from 2009 to 2010.
