Future

The foundation stone of doubling of railway line and electrification was laid by the hon'ble Prime Minister Modi on his trip to motihari on the centenary celebration of the Champaran Satyagrah in 2018. Modi flags off train, kick-starts track doubling, dedicates loco unit to nation in Bihar. The doubling work survey for "Muzaffarpur–Gorakhpur main line" was sanctioned in the Railway Budget of 2012-13.[1]

The East Central Railway zone also applied for the electrification of the following sections to the Ministry of Railways (India) for the Rail Budget 2015-16.[2][3]
