Report No. 251
29. Futwah Islampur Light Railway Line (Nationalization) Act, Act 83 of 1985
This Act provided for the acquisition of the Futwah Islampur Light Railway Line - a two feet six inches narrow gauge railway line in Bihar - owned by the Futwah Islampur Light Railway Company. The Act provided for the acquisition of the Futwah Islampur Light Railway Line as it was considered to be hazardous and uneconomical, and Futwah Islampur Railway Company was not in a position to manage the line.
The railway line was acquired by Indian Railways and was closed in 1987. The purpose of this Act insofar as the nationalisation of the railway line was concerned has been served and this Act can be repealed. If necessary, a suitable savings clause should be inserted in the repealing Act.
