Letter to the Minister of Railways (JV Company- Kerala Rail Development Corporation)

Dear Shri. Piyush Goyal Ji,

Kindly refer to your D.O. letter No 2017/W-1/Gent/SPV/Kerala dated November 20, 2017. I would like to express my gratitude for your keen interest in the development of Railway Infrastructure in Kerala.

The JV Company, Kerala Rail Development Corporation has already started functioning. Director (Project & Planning) and Managing Director are in position. The post of Director (Finance) has been re-advertised.

We have already identified the projects to be implemented over a period of 5-10 years. The preparation of DPR for the identified projects is underway, and we should be in a position to submit the few DPRs to the Railway Board by the end of this month.

I would therefore request your kind intervention for early processing of the DPRs when submitted and for inclusion of the proposals in the pink book for 2018-19.

With regards,

Yours sincerely,


Shri. Piyush Goyal
Hon’ble Minister of Railways,
Govt. of India,
Rail Bhawan, Rafi Marg
New Delhi-110 001.
