@PiyushGoyal
Railways has planned for 100 per cent electrification of its broad gauge routes by 2023. This was stated by the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.

The Minister informed that around 63 per cent broad gauge lines have already been electrified out of a total 63,631 route kilometers as on 1st of April this year.

He said, a total of 23,765 route kilometre lines are yet to be electrified in the country.

In another question, the Railway Minister said, the vacant land of Railways which is not required for its immediate operational needs is utilized in the interim period for commercial development to mobilize additional financial resources.

He said, station redevelopment is planned by leveraging real estate potential of spareable land and air spaces in and around the station by inviting private participation.
