    budgets give the new allocation for various projects such as new rail lines, doubling of lines & various on going projects. in the state of odisha. If they mentioned the actual expenditure against the allocated fund of last year it will give the actual information of capital expenditure made or money not utilised. mere allocation gives only one side story of railway activities it will only be factual if they also inform the actual utilisation of fund agaist allocation.
