PM to inaugurate India’s second Multi-Modal Terminal in Jharkhand
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate to the nation India’s second riverine Multi-Modal terminal (MMT) built at Sahibganj in Jharkhand on Thursday.
It has been built at a cost of 290 crore rupees in a record time of about two years. Prime Minister Modi had laid the foundation stone of terminal in April, 2017.
The terminal at Sahibganj will open up industries of Jharkhand and Bihar to the global market and provide Indo-Nepal cargo connectivity through waterways route.
Coal, stone chips, fertilizers, cement and sugar are other commodities expected to be transported through the terminal. This is the second of the three Multi-Modal Terminals being constructed on river Ganga under Jal Marg Vikas Project.
Earlier, in November last year, the Prime Minister had inaugurated the MMT at Varanasi.
