Modernisation of Railway Stations
23 SEP 2020
The work of redevelopment is in advanced stage at Gandhinagar (Western Railway) and Habibganj (West Central Railway) railway stations. Re-development works are in progress at Gomtinagar (North Eastern Railway) and Ayodhya stations (Northern Railway). Contracts have been awarded for redevelopment of Anand Vihar (Northern Railway), Bijwasan (Northern Railway) and Chandigarh (Northern Railway) railway stations.
Station redevelopment is planned by leveraging real estate potential of sparable land and air space in and around the stations, through private participation. The selection of developer is done following a transparent and competitive bidding process. Recently, Request for Qualification (RFQ) was invited for redevelopment of eight (8) railway stations viz. Nagpur, Gwalior, Amritsar, Sabarmati, Nellore, Puducherry, Dehradun & Tirupati on Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode. Private developers have shown interest and accordingly, RFQ applications for all 8 stations have been received.
Ministry of Railways has not signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) with any foreign country in this regard,
