Cabinet approves setting up of joint ventures for railway infrastructure

New Delhi: The cabinet today approved the formation of joint venture companies with state governments to undertake various railway infrastructure projects.

“This would ensure greater participation of state governments in the implementation of railway projects both in terms of financial participation as well as the decision-making process,” a statement issued after a cabinet meeting said.

The railway ministry’s initial paid up capital will be restricted to Rs 50 crore for each state.

“Each Joint Venture would have an initial paid up capital of Rs.100 crore based on the quantum of projects to be undertaken. Further infusion of fund/equity for the purpose of the projects shall be done after approval of the project and its funding at the level of appropriate competent authority,” the statement said.

Project specific Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) can also be formed by the joint ventures with equity holding by other stakeholders like banks, ports, public sector undertakings, mining companies and others. (IANS)
