    Indian Railways will borrow less at Rs 11,790 crore from market through its two companies IRFC and Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd for capital expenditure during 2014-15.

    "As I have increased internal resource component of Plan, I propose to scale down market borrowings... To Rs 11,790 crore," Railways Minister D V Sadananda Gowda said in his proposals while presenting the Rail Budget today.

    Resources from PPP are kept at the interim (budget) level, he said.

    Indian Railways Finance Corporation (IRFC) will raise Rs 11,500 crore in 2014-15 for investment in rolling stock and projects, the Railway Budget document tabled in Parliament said.

    Besides, the other financial firm under Indian Railway, Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd (RVNL), plans to raise Rs 290 crore through market borrowing.

    During 2013-14, IRFC raised Rs 14,688 crore while RVNL mopped up Rs 254 crore from the market.

    Besides, Railways expects to mobilise Rs 6,005 crore through the Public Private Partnership (PPP) route during 2014-15.
