Railways minister Mallikarjun Kharge announced that 73 new trains will be introduced during 2014/15 across premium, express and passenger train categories. He also proposed 19 surveys to be taken up in 2014/15 for new lines.

Besides, Railways expects to mobilise Rs 6,005 crore through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) route during 2014-15.
The railway minister read out his speech on interim budget but had to stop after less than 20 minutes because of intense sloganeering over Telangana issue.
