The Railways has asked Container Corporation of India Limited to vacate the land leased to it at Desur as the said land is urgently required by Railways for developing a store of PGCIL for electrification purposes.
Now sources have confirmed that MoSR Suresh Angadi has told the SWR to set up a container depot close to the airport near Sambra and a new Railway Coach repair and maintenance unit will be set up at Desur.
Railways are also planning to invest close to 2000cr to develop the ancillary units to supply to Indian railways and also export railway components abroad and the MoSR had identified Kittur for the same.
