Belarus Wants To Modernise Calcutta Tramways, Says Official

A Belarus team is likely to visit to study the technical and operational modernisation required


Kolkata: 

Belarus has expressed interest in modernising the tramways of Kolkata, West Bengal, besides exporting buses and dumper trucks to India.

Bharat Chamber of Commerce president Sitaram Sharma said a team from the Eastern European country is likely to visit the city to study the technical and operational modernisation required for Calcutta Tramways.

Ambassador of the Republic of Belarus in India, Andrei I Rzeheussky, said Belarusian firm BELAZ is also likely to sign an agreement with Coal India for the supply of dumper trucks.

He said Belarus has export-oriented manufacturing industries with its strength in machinery, passenger and commercial cars, electric buses, dumper trucks, harvesters and agricultural equipment.

Mr Sharma said Belarusian firms have also shown interest in manufacture and supply of electric vehicles and trolleybuses.

"The Belarus-made trolleybuses are customised for Indian roads and have quick charging features," he said.
