As much as 6.57 hectares will have to be acquired on the Balaramapuram-Vizhinjam stretch for laying the line.
The cost of providing the rail connectivity, including land acquisition, has been put at Rs. 1,069 crore.
The government has decided to set up a high-level committee to look into the DPR submitted by the KRCL, official sources toldThe Hinduon Thursday. Fine-tuning of the alignment will be taken up after the evaluation.

The KRCL, experts in constructing tunnels, was roped in after Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL) under the Union Ministry of Railways backed out from the seaport connectivity project. The plan is to establish the railway link by May 2022.
The development of the Balaramapuram railway station is being explored as part of the rail link to the seaport. A committee comprising officials of the Department of Ports, VISL, and Railways is working on the procedures.

MOU was signed between Jayakumar, the managing director of VISL, and Sanjay Gupta, Chairman and Managing Director of KRCL, in the presence of Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and Minister for Ports Kadannapally Ramachandran at the Secretariat.
The 12-km rail connectivity to Vizhinjam seaport will be from Balaramapuram on the Thiruvananthapuram Central-Nagercoil Junction-Kanyakumari railway line.
Of the 12-km rail link from Balaramapuram, eight to nine kms will be through tunnels to reduce displacement of people.
The rail link is to be established by May 2022 and 12.14 hectares of land is to be acquired by the State government on the Balaramapuram-Vizhinjam stretch for link-up to the main railway line.
Experts
The KRCL, experts in the country in constructing tunnels, has been tasked with the work after the Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL), under Ministry of Railways, backed out from the project citing other works it had at hand.
Now, the KRCL would have a fresh look on the alignment proposed by the RVNL and would finalise the alignment only after considering all aspects, official sources said.
Funds
The government would also try to get funds from the Sagarmala project of the Union Ministry of Shipping for laying the rail link. Doubling and electrification of 86.56-km Thiruvananthapuram Central- Kanyakumari rail line began on January 23.
The doubling works was taken up at an estimated cost of Rs. 1,431.90 crore.
