Howrah sainik rest house to get new look


KOLKATA: Howrah railway station is all set to get a swanky sainik rest house in two months.

Station commander of Kolkata Garrison Major General Harsha Kakar inspected the movement control office at Howrah station on Tuesday and expressed satisfaction over the progress of the modernization project of the military rest room.

From tanks, armoured personnel carriers and trucks to artillery pieces, the military moves nearly all its equipment by rail. The Indian Railways also move lakhs of soldiers and their dependents every year.

The modernization will make rail journey more comfortable for defence personnel and their families. “Replete with modern amenities, the new facility is expected to be ready at platform No. 17 in the next two months,” said Colonel Bhaskaran SKM, who is responsible for overseeing movement control and forwarding of troops.
