Before 1947 , there used to be tracks from Khemkaran (Indian Border Village) to Kasur Town (Pakistan Border village). Kindly see the map attached. The Black color arrowed Line from Khemkaran to Ferozpur through Pakistan was the original line Pre-Independence which used to run along the Main road connecting Khemkaran Village with Nearest Towns (Kasur) and further through Husainiwala Border Check post to Ferozpur. But as the Partition line was drawn by Indian Ministers , the people of these border villages have to suffer the most.
One such example is Khemkaran village which is now somehow Cut off from main land. And this was the reason why Pakistani Forces were easily able to Capture this Khemkaran Village during the 1965 war.

Indian Government and the Punjab state Government has not done enough to help or compensate these border area people. Indian railways started Direct Train connectivity from Khemkaran to Amritsar but its a Circular journey for those who wish to go to southwards. Only option left is by road transport which is the life line of these regions.
Its been nearly 50 years that many sections of society, Political groups and social service groups have protested for a proper rail connectivity for Khemkaran village with the Nearest Big Town Ferozpur as a alternative for the past tracks. Even in 2013 Money was sanctioned from Centre but on ground Nothing started.
Kindly have a look at the map.
The Black color arrowed Line is the Earlier tracks in past which are now defunct from Husainiwala (Near Firozpur City station).
And the Red color arrowed Line is the Planned and "to be made" line by Indian railways. Clearly you can see this simple straight line (adding a Rail bridge over Satluj river) can prove a serious boon for these border area people. Also along with this small rail link could reduce nearly 240 km distance between Amritsar and Mumbai , along with can be used as a alternate route for Amritsar to Rajasthan tracks via Haryana (We all saw what Jats did to the whole rail connectivity last March).

Khem Karn Railway Station
-------------------------
which was captured by Pakistani military during the war of 1965. It was the site of a major tank battle in 1965 resulting it also being known as the graveyard of tanks. In pic you would see Commander-in-Chief Pakistan Army, General Muhammad Musa visiting the captured Khemkaran Railway Station which was then in Amritsar Distrcit and now in Tarn Taran District. Before partition it was in Lahore Dist.

The town used to be easily accessible to the city of Kasur, Pakistan only 8 km away, and to Ferozepur 35 km away, but since India and Pakistan enacted border controls in 1953, the residents of the Khem Karan have been essentially cut off from both towns - Kasur lies in Pakistan, while the road to Ferozepur cuts through Pakistan, resulting in a detour of an extra 70 kilometre's drive. The townpeople, and those from surrounding villages, must now travel a long distance to Amritsar or Tarn Taran to procure any major goods, causing great inconvenience, and economic stagnation.
