In an effort to expedite the work of the Wadsa Deasaiganj-Gadchiroli new railway track, Maharashtra Government agreed to 50 percent contribution in a revised estimate of Rs 1096 crore project.
The originally estimated cost Rs 200 crore in 2010 has gone up to Rs 469 crore. The work is going on at a very slow pace. Central Government so far provided Rs 29.22 crore and Maharashtra Government contributed Rs 19.22 crore.
