SALEM: The Railway Ministry on Tuesday gave the green signal for initiating preliminary works of the Salem division.

Officials of the Salem junction erected a digital nameplate mentioning `Divisional Railway Manager's Office, Salem' at the site earmarked for construction. An official of the rank of Assistant Commercial Manager from Chennai has taken charge to monitor commercial activities of the new division and the formation works.

A senior Railway official told The Hindu that a portion of the Office of the Deputy Commercial Engineer (Construction) at the Salem Railway Station had been allotted to the commercial department of the new divisional office. The Salem BSNL expeditiously cleared two telephone connections. The Railway Ministry dispatched a fax machine.

"The Fax number for the commercial section is 0427-2441100," the official said.

The bicycle stand and the parcel office have been shifted to new places to facilitate construction of administrative buildings of the Salem division.

The foundation laying function is likely to be held on April 14.
