This project saw inter-ministerial coordination, including from Railways and Defense, to enhance the ease of living for citizens of Varanasi.

The project is built at a cost of Rs 360 crore. It helps in reducing the distance of travel from Banaras Hindu University (BHU) towards the airport from 75 minutes to 45 minutes.

The Prime Minister also held a roadshow in Varanasi. He will be on a two-day visit starting on February 23.

After this, the PM will visit Banas Kashi Sankul (Amul Dairy) in Karkhianv Agro Park, inaugurate 23 projects worth Rs 10972.00 crore and lay the foundation stone for 12 projects worth Rs 2195.07 crore on the park premises.

The PM will also address a big public meeting from here, in which a large number of farmers will be present.

He will also visit the Kashi Sansad Photography Competition Gallery and interact with the participants regarding their photograph entries on the theme "Samvarti Kashi". The PM will reach Sirgovardhan by road at around 11:45 am after the program of about an hour.

To give a boost to Varanasi's famous textile sector, the Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) in Varanasi. This new institute will strengthen the education and training infrastructure in the textile sector.

Expanding the health infrastructure, the Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone of a new medical college in Varanasi. He will also lay the foundation stone for the National Center on Aging in BHU. The Prime Minister will inaugurate the Sigra Sports Stadium Phase 1 and District Rifle Shooting Range, a step towards strengthening the sports infrastructure in the city.

The Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stone for several projects for the beautification of Varanasi, including rejuvenation projects of ponds and redevelopment of parks and a project for the design and development of a 3-D urban digital map and database.

The Prime Minister will also inaugurate several projects related to tourism and spiritual tourism in Varanasi. These projects include ten spiritual journeys along the Panchkoshi Parikrama Marg and the redevelopment of public facilities at five stops on the Pavan Path.
