Rae Bareli: The rail coach factory coming up in the Lalganj area of Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's Lok Sabha constituency will start production in October next year, a Union minister said today.

The unit would become operational on October 2, the Gandhi Jayanti Day, Minister of state for Railways, K H Muniyappa, told reporters here.

He said preliminary formalities have been completed and over Rs 30 crore of the Rs 32 crore compensation has been provided to farmers for their acquired land.

The remaining amount would be provided to the district administration soon.

The setting up of the factory had created political tension in the state with BSP placing hurdles in its realisation. The differences between Congress and the ruling party had thawed later paving the way for its establishment.
