Kolkata, 26th March, 2018
In an attempt to increase passenger amenities and to give an aesthetic makeover to the most visited stations across Indian Railways, Ministry of Railways has formulated the plan to redevelop 90 stations across Indian Railways. The redevelopment plan of 90 stations is assigned to different zones/nodal agencies. Given that some stations are important pilgrimage hubs and report over 45,000 footfalls per day, Indian Railways would strive to ensure that passenger's get best services at the stations even during peak seasons.
Out of these 90 Stations, three Railway Stations of South Eastern Railway viz. Adra, Jharsuguda and Ranchi have been taken up in this Programme for Redevelopment. These Stations will be developed on lines of local heritage and culture.
It may be noted that Indian Railways is in the process of redevelopment of more than 600 stations. While doing this, efforts would be made to showcase local culture or history to reflect in the station façade.
