Janakpurdham, February 14: The long-awaited Janakpur-Jayanagar railway service has come into operation. The railway service came into operation 16 months after the government purchased two trains from India at the cost of Rs 840 million.

According to Niranjan Jha, General Manager of Nepal Railway Company, in the first phase of the 69-kilometer Jayanagar-Bijalpura-Bardibas railway, 32-kilometer Jayanagar-Kurtha railway has come into operation.

General Manager Jha said, “From today, the train will run once a day to Kurtha-Jayanagar on a regular basis.

He said that Nepal Railway Company has recruited the remaining 65 administrative and auxiliary employees and trained them for the regular operation of the railway service.
