The Union Railway Minister Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu has said that encroachment on the Railway Land is a serious issue and to counter this, digitized mapping of land records has been initiated and responsibility will be fixed on officials for any encroachments. Presenting Railway Budget for 2015-16 in Parliament today he dwelt upon the resource mobilization by Railways.

Encroachment has always been a major issue as the public sector behemoth often gets embroiled in battles with the public while implementing new projects due to land -related troubles.

“I wish to state that encroachment on Railway land is a serious issue. To counter this, digitized mapping of land records has been initiated and responsibility will be fixed on officials for any encroachments,” Prabhu said while reading out the Railway Budget in Parliament.
