The project is also expected to boost economic growth by creating job opportunities and promoting tourism.

    The project is being implemented by NHSRCL, which is a special purpose vehicle created for the project. The total cost of the project is estimated to be around Rs 1.08 lakh crore, out of which around 80% is being funded by JICA through ODA loans.
