Delay in many railway projects
Recently, it was revealed in a report that 3 out of 4 projects of railways are running late. A major reason for this is also being told that the cost of the Ministry of Road and Transport has increased by 9.67 percent. Actually, Indian Railways is the second largest ministry in the country based on the cost of the projects. But here 3 out of every 4 projects are getting delayed because a major part of the cost is with the road and transport ministry.
Let us tell you that earlier it was also reported that Central Railway is preparing to redevelop Pune Shivajinagar railway station in Maharashtra. Earlier this responsibility was given to RLDA (Railway Land Development Authority). But, they did not do any work, so the Railway Board handed over the responsibility of this work to the Central Railway.
Media reports say that Indian Railways plans to develop most of the stations in India by the year 2024. Shivajinagar station has also been included in this.
