Single Demand Number for Ministry of Railways - 83




Single Demand Number for Ministry of Railways is 83  (as per Budget documents 2020-21)



Note:
The reason why the Government changes the number of Demand pertaining to Railways is not clear. Initially i.e., when Railway Budget was merged with General Budget in 2017-18, Single Demand No. 80 was allotted for Railways.  Subsequently, 80 was changed to 81,  again changed to 82.  Finally as per latest budget documents of 2020-21 year, it is again changed to 83. 

May be due to intervening of some new ministries/ depts and alphabetical order are the reasons for such change.
