The rail line had not yet reached Godda. This is the first rail line that will go to Godda. Till now road is the only option to go to Godda from Bhagalpur or elsewhere. Now people can also go to Godda by train. This will also increase trade between Bhagalpur and Godda. Because the big market for the people of Godda is Bhagalpur.
