For timely completion of the projects, Railways is holding regular meetings with State Government and concerned Central Government officials on various issues involving alignment, land acquisition, forestry and wildlife clearances, law & order problems, shifting of utilities etc.

For important projects, capacity enhancement projects, last mile connectivity etc, institutional financing has been done by arranging a loan from M/s Life Insurance Corporation of India Limited for 1.5 lakh crore, which has increased Railways’ capacity for committed fund provision for essential projects.

This information was given by the Minister of State of Railways, Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
