    The senior railway officer said the Railway Board had given the go ahead to the proposal for constructing escalators at the Tatanagar railway station. The escalator will be installed at platform number 1, 4 and 5 in a year, he said, adding that escalators will be installed gradually at all platforms.

    This year the freight was 2 million less than usual due to ban on mining, he said.
