More halt points have been set up along the Baramulla-Banihal railway track for convenience of commuters, officials said on Sunday.

An official spokesman said that setting up of these halt points has eased movement of daily passengers by giving them timely access to stations.

“The Ministry of Railways recently ordered setting up of four more halt points on the rail line  at Razwan (Sanoor Kalipora) between Budgam and Mazhome railway stations, Naidgam between Budgam and Mazhome railway stations, Ratnipora (Pulwama) between Kakapora and Awantipora stations and Sangdan (Kulgam) between Qazigund and Sadura railway stations,” the spokesman said.

He said people of these areas had represented before chief minister Mehbooba Mufti for setting up of these halt points for their facilitation.

“Mehbooba took up the issue with Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu through various communications and even met him to press for setting up of these halt points for the convenience of passengers, students and employees,” the spokesman said. 

Meanwhile, a deputation of people from Pulwama, led local MLA, on Sunday met the chief minister and demanded setting up of a halt station at Naina-Batapora on Baramulla-Banihal railway line for the convenience of the commuters.

“The chief minister assured the deputation that she would take up the demand with Railway Minister for appropriate action,” the spokesman said.
