SC Summons Officials to Submit Report on KCR Project

SC Summons Officials to Submit Report on KCR Project – Sindh chief secretary, railways secretary, and the FWO to present their reports.

Supreme Court issued a notice to Pakistan Railways and Sindh government on their failure to propagate the Karachi Circular Railway (KCR) properly.

The notice was issued today by a 3-member bench headed by CJ Gulzar Ahmed.

The bench ordered the Sindh chief secretary, railways secretary, and the Frontier Works Organisation (FWO) director-general to appear in person in the next hearing and state why the project is still not operational.

We will call everyone. If need be, even the premier and chief minister will be called,

The hearing has been adjourned for two weeks.

According to the report, the KCR project was initiated in 1964. The route started from Drigh Road and ended in downtown Karachi. However, after suffering losses for years, it ceased its operations in 1999.

The updated KCR project includes the transformation of the old route and the extension of the railway track, expected to be 50 kilometers.
