India takes lead in Trans-Asian Railway Southern Corridor from Dhaka to Istanbul (Relevant for GS Prelims, GS mains Paper II)

Codenamed the ITI-DKD-Y corridor, the container train’s route is scheduled as Dhaka-Kolkata-Delhi-Islamabad-Tehran-Istanbul.

Taking a leaf from China’s run to Europe, India is going to showcase its might in freight movement by running a trans-continental container train full of goods from Dhaka to Istanbul, covering a 6,000-km journey across five countries — Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Iran and Turkey.

Codenamed the ITI-DKD-Y corridor or the Trans-Asian Railway Southern Corridor container train’s route is scheduled as Dhaka-Kolkata-Delhi-Islamabad-Tehran-Istanbul. Eventually, Yangon will also be connected to Dhaka under the aegis of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP).

Why is the proposed train beneficial?
Currently, goods take a long, roundabout route from Ludhiana to Lahore which otherwise are just a few hours apart by rail
