The Economic Times - - Economy: Macro, Micro & More -

A BJP mem­ber on Wed­nes­day de­manded in the Lok Sabha a probe into the dual freight pol­icy adopted by the Rail­ways sev­eral years back, say­ing it has re­sulted in the loss of thou­sands of crores of ru­pees. Rais­ing the issue dur­ing Zero Hour, Nishikant Dubey said Rail­ways had adopted the dual freight pol­icy un­der which the rates were dif­fer­ent for trans­port­ing goods meant for do­mes­tic and in­ter­na­tional pur­poses. Un­der this pol­icy, iron ore trans­ported for do­mes­tic pur­pose was later ex­ported, mostly to China which hosted the 2008 Bei­jing Olympics, he said.
