New Delhi. A huge Freight Village is also going to be built by the Railways near Jewar Airport. This village of the Dedicated Freight Corridor of the Railways will be a multi-modal transport hub. This will not only create employment opportunities for thousands of people in the region but will also boost foreign trade and economic development within the country.
