The CAG report on Waste Management in Indian Railways was presented in Parliament on 08 August, 2022. It also pointed out that there is no single body or agency in the Indian Railways solely responsible for handling waste management-related issues, adding that there is no system of dedicated fund allocation specifically for waste management.
