“The work will ensure erosion from the slopes along the rail tracks. Mud and patches of grass will be laid on the slopes to prevent erosion,” said Surajit Chatterjee, an official of the 100-day project of the district administration.

While the district administration would provide the workforce, the technical input would be given by the railways.
