India, Nepal rail survey
Kathmandu: Nepal and India have agreed to seal an agreement for preliminary engineering-cum-traffic survey for building a rail link that will connect Raxual in Bihar to the Nepalese capital, weeks after Nepal and China agreed on a feasibility study for a railway line connecting Tibet with the Himalayan nation.
Nepal and India had agreed to construct railway line linking Raxaul with Kathmandu during Prime Minister K.P. Oli Sharma's visit to India.
Apart from Raxaul-Kathmandu railway line, India has already started building five cross-border railway lines between Nepal and India. Senior government officials from Nepal and India on Monday agreed to seal the memorandum of understanding of the Raxaul-Kathmandu rail line as soon as possible.
