In a move aimed at expediting the completion of the much delayed Khurda-Bolangir railway project, the state government on Friday decided to provide the required land for the project free of cost to the Railways.

The proposal of the state government, approved by chief minister Naveen Patnaik at a high-level review meeting at the State Secretariat here on Thursday, would be sent to the Centre soon, official sources said on Friday.

Besides providing the required land along the 177-km route between Daspalla and Bolangir, the state government would also bear 50 percent of the total cost of the project, the meeting decided.
