Marking another major milestone in the transformative growth story underway in Indian Railways, the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi would be laying the foundation stone / inaugurating / dedicating 554 Amrit Stations and 1,500 Road Over Bridges / Road Under Bridges (ROB/RUB). As part of it, 57 Amrit Stations and 156 ROBs / RUBs spread across the States of SCR jurisdiction will be laid foundation stone / dedicated to the Nation.

A major transformation is in under way in Indian Railways to upgrade railway stations o­n a massive scale, so as to provide World-class facilities to the rail passengers. Under the “Amrit Bharat Station Scheme”, railway stations across the nation are being redeveloped, not o­nly to provide modern passenger amenities but also to convert them into growth centers to the city’s populace. The mission got a fillip, when in August 2023, the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, laid the foundation stone for the redevelopment of 508 Railway Stations across the country.

Taking this ahead, foundation stone is being laid / inaugurated / dedicated for another 554 Stations. This includes 57 Stations of South Central Railways spread across the 4 states of Telangana (15), Andhra Pradesh (34), Maharashtra (6) and Karnataka (2) at a combined cost of nearly Rs. 925 crores.

The ABSS policy formulated by the Ministry of Railways is aimed to modernize Railway stations, envisaging development o­n a continuous basis with a long term vision. The idea is based o­n implementation of various critical elements as per a master plan that caters to ever increasing needs and enhanced patronage of the Railway stations. Facilities planned under Amrit Bharat Station Scheme include:

·Improvement of facades & aesthetically pleasing entrance porches.

·Betterment of station approaches to ensure smooth access by widening of roads

·Properly designed signages, dedicated pedestrian pathways, well planned parking areas, improved lighting etc.

·Creation of Landscaping, green patches

·Preference to local art and culture to create a pleasant experience for the rail users.

·Earmarking stalls for “One Station o­ne Product” scheme.

·Enabling Second Entry for Station Building and circulating area as per the feasibility.

·Construction of High-level platforms and adequate Platform shelters.

·Provision of passenger facilities and amenities like high Quality public announcement system, LED based station name boards, improvements to waiting halls, user friendly signages etc.

In addition, foundation stone is being laid / dedicated to 156 ROB/RUBs spread across the four states in the jurisdiction of South Central Railways – Telangana (49), Andhra Pradesh (59), Maharashtra (19) and Madhya Pradesh (29) at a combined cost of nearly Rs. 927.31 crores. This will help in strengthening the safety for both road and rail users, facilitate seamless movement of traffic for road users without any detention at Level crossing gates, saves journey and fuel costs for the road commuters and acts a bridge connecting localities, villages and towns.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager, during the press conference held today i.e., 24th February 2024 at Rail Nilayam has said that all these initiatives will further strengthen the rail infrastructure in the Zone, while also enhancing the safety standards across its rail networks. He said that the redevelopment of these railway stations is being accorded top priority so that work is completed within the planned time period. o­nce completed, these stations will provide unique experience to rail passengers travelling from these stations with modern amenities.
