RAILWAY MINISTER LAUNCHES

STATION REDEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

Kolkata, 8th February, 2017:

Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu, Hon’ble Minsiter for Railways launched Station Redevelopment Programme through video conferencing from Rail Bhawan, New Delhi today (08/02/2017). As many as 23 stations would be developed in first phase by zonal railways to world class standards. Ranchi station of South Eastern Railway has been taken up as a part of Station Redevelopment Programme. This innovative programme involves upgrading stations by developing passenger amenity works through PPP model without straining railway’s finances.

The main objective is to develop the railway stations across Indian Railways by augmenting and improving passenger related amenities at stations in a holistic manner. The redeveloped stations will improve passenger experience by providing amenities like digital signage, escalators/elevators, self ticketing counters, executive lounges, luggage screening machines, walk ways etc.

There are presently more than 8,000 stations in Indian Railways, out of which 400 stations are selected for Station Redevelopment Programme based o­n station revenue and this kind of development will touch 16 million passengers footfalls per day i.e. 70% of total daily footfall.

This bold step will bring turnaround of Indian Railways in coming days.
