On Thursday, in a letter to additional chief secretary of urban development Mahendra Jain, the Railway Ministry said the Railway Board has agreed to the proposal of the Karnataka government for conversion of 15 existing short-distance passenger trains into Mainline Multiple Electric Units (MEMU), the Times of India reported.
These MEMUs will be equipped with 12 bogies at a budget of Rs 327.79 crore. The ministry also approved a proposal to take up enhancement of maintenance facilities for MEMU at Banaswadi at a budget of Rs 29.45 crore.
80% by KA govt? Does it mean that KA will be the first state to pay for rakes too?
They already pay for the new lines being built - land acquisition and also some amount for track laying.
Lucky Chennai and Mumbai everything for suburban rail is paid by Center.
