At the end of the first 100 days of the current financial year 2020-21, the Railway Revenue Department failed to achieve the government target. At the end of the first 100 days, the Railways incurred a record deficit of Rs. There are serious difficulties in meeting the target.
According to sources, the railways earned Rs 8.59 billion less than the target. According to railway statistics, in the first 100 days, the railways earned a total of Rs 10.85 billion. The government’s revenue target was set at Rs 19.44 billion. And in all periods, there was low income, non-resumption of full train operations and delays in trains did not improve the railway conditions.
According to Railway Spokesperson Qurat-ul-Ain Fatima, due to the Coronavirus, the Railways is running limited train operations and due to the Coronavirus, the number of passengers has decreased, due to which the revenue has also decreased temporarily. With the hard work of Railway Minister Sheikh Rashid and Chairman Railway Habib-ur-Rehman Gilani, the railways will soon become a profitable institution.
