NEW DELHI: The railway minister, Mamata Banerjee has demanded Rs 100,000 crore from the government fund for completing all the pending projects of the railways.

The Indian Railways have incurred a revenue loss of about Rs 1,500 crore over the past three years for the situation beyond its control, Ms Bannerjee said.
