New Delhi: Renewing its commitment to the strategic Jammu-Baramulla rail link in Jammu and Kashmir, the Cabinet Committee on Infrastructure approved additional Rs.19, 000 crore towards completion of the project Wednesday, official sources said.

The sources said the difficult mountainous stretch in the rail link between Katra and Qazigund has been delayed due to cost overruns.

The links between Jammu-Udhampur and Qazigund-Baramulla are operational while Udhampur-Katra is to be started in near future.
