Garg said during Fortune India pre-budget roundtable that the capital expenditure in the railways sector is not yielding returns and called for a surgical restructuring on the way in which the railways is run in the country. “Road should be brought back on the BoT model even if the government wants to fund 60% or 70% as viability gap funding.
