NEW DELHI: Sri Lanka has requested Indian help to revamp the railway network in the island country and also supply 200 rail coaches.

The request to import rail coaches was made by Sri Lankan member of parliament Anura Bhandarnayake during a meeting with Minister of State for Railways Basanagouda R. Patil here Tuesday.

Indian Railways' consultancy wing RITES has been advising Sri Lankan Railways on measures for revamping and ungrading its network.

Based on RITES' input, Sri Lanka has sought "import of 200 coaches from the Integral Rail Coach Factory in Chennai and Indian credit to augment Sri Lankan Railways," an official statement said.
