NEW DELHI: The railways suffered Rs 1,462 crore loss in terms of freight revenue during this year due to various agitations and strikes including dharnas at platforms near railway tracks, the government told Rajya Sabha.

The minister added that in the new restructured Railway Board, a designated director-general of safety has been appointed for the first time.
In response to another question, the ministry said 592 railway employees have lost their lives due to Covid-19. It said no employee has been sent on leave or not received salary since March 2020 due to the pandemic.
