“About Rs 8 crore has been allocated (for the task),” said Sinha who was visiting Sachana in Ahmedabad district to unveil a new Inland Container Depot (ICD), developed by Continental Warehousing Corporation (Nhava Seva).


Ahmedabad Divisional Railway Manager Dinesh Kumar, who was accompanying the minister, told media persons, “Tourism ministry has allotted Rs 8 crore for the development of Vadnagar station.
