First Railway Line in Partnership with Ministry of Railways
Having initiated the port project, the most important linkage that had to be put in place was rail connectivity. SKIL took yet another unprecedented bold initiative to foster partnership with Ministry of Railways by undertaking a railway project comprising of 286 kms of rail line connecting port of Pipavav to nearest broad guage station i.e. Surendranagar under Public Private Partnership (PPP) Model. The project was executed in a record time of less than 18 months through an SPV namely Pipavav Railway Corporation Ltd. (PRCL). With this project Pipavav got connected to the rest of Rail Network of the country. It shall not be an understatement to make, that this joint venture heralded the privatization of Railway projects in the Country.
