India already has connectivity with Bangladesh and Pakistan. But there is a proposal to extend this linkage to Istanbul (Turkey).

This proposed “Trans-Asian Railway (TAR)”or the “ITI-DKD” (Istanbul-Tehran-Islamabad; Delhi-Kolkata-Dhaka) corridor will be 6,000 km long, covering Dhaka-Kolkata-Delhi-Amritsar-Lahore-Islamabad-Zahedan-Tehran-Istanbul. There is also a proposal to extend this corridor to Yangon (Myanmar).Thus, the “ITI-DKD-Y” corridor could become one of the major international rail corridors in the world.

The feasibility studies of the strategic route connecting the capitals of the countries have been done by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) as part of its Trans-Asian Railway (TAR) project for an integrated freight network across Europe and Asia.

A meeting was organized in New Delhi by the UNESCAP with the Ministry of Railways and Organization for Co-operation between Railways, to deliberate on the concept and remove bottlenecks.

Concluding Remark: The project has several obstacles in its way. India is trying to do this because its neighbor China has executed a rail project to London.

At the same time Pakistan and China have cordial relations. In such a situation Pakistan will not allow India to execute the project smoothly. Various conferences have earlier been held with the countries involved in the project that would also include the rail networks in Nepal.

Nepal can be connected via the existing and operational rail route of Birgunj -a border town in Parsa District of southern Nepal-Kolkata. Bhutan and Afghanistan that do not have rail connectivity at present may also be connected at a later stage.

Bhutan can be connected by road from Kolkata (existing route) and containers can be loaded in Afghanistan by connecting road routes with the railway network either at Quetta through Spin Boldak (in the southern Kandahar province of Afghanistan)-Chaman (capital of Qilla Abdullah District, Balochistan) or at Islamabad through Torkham (one of the major International border crossings between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
