In a novel initiative to promote local/indigenous products by providing a market and creating additional income opportunities for the marginalized sections of society, ‘One Station o­ne Product’ scheme was launched by the Ministry of Railways. The concept which was announced in the union budget of 2022-23 has gained popularity since then. Starting with six railway stations across SCR, there has been enormous response from the local populace and now, ‘One station o­ne Product’ Stalls are being operated at 109 Railway stations with 120 stalls.

In the State of Telangana, 33 Railway stations including Secunderabad, Hyderabad, Kacheguda, Warangal, Nizamabad, Gadwal etc., are covered with 41 stalls of o­ne station o­ne product thereby giving a major boost to livelihood and welfare of local artisans. Some of the products include handlooms by local weavers such as traditional Narayanpet, Gadwal and Pochampalli sarees; Millet based food products; TSCOhandlooms, Bhadrachalam bamboo crafts; temple deity idols; forest collections, Handi crafts; Nirmal toys, local delicacies etc.

In the State of Andhra Pradesh over SCR jurisdiction, 53 Railway stations including Vijayawada, Tirupati, Kurnool, Guntur, Anantapur, Nellore etc., are covered with 56 stalls of o­ne station o­ne product thereby giving a major boost to livelihood and welfare of local artisans. Some of the products include Jute products, Kalamkari products, Etikoppaka toys, handmade wooden cutlery, millet based products etc.

In the state of Maharashtra over SCR jurisdiction, 20 Railway stations including Nanded, Aurnagabad, Himayatnagar, Nagarsol, Mudkhed etc., are covered with 20 stalls of o­ne station o­ne product thereby giving a major boost to livelihood of local people. Some of the products include Handloom products, mats, Rajgira Laddu, Jowar Powder, Papads etc

In the State of Karnataka over SCR jurisdiction, 03 railway stations viz., Bidar, Yadgir and Raichur are covered with 03 stalls of o­ne station o­ne product thereby providing opportunity to local people. Some of the products include Handloom sarees, Bidri Handicrafts, handmade jewellery etc.

Under this scheme, Indian Railways is providing uniquely designed sale outlets with distinctive look, feel and logo at stations as per the design developed by NID/Ahmedabad for showcasing, selling and giving high visibility to indigenous/local products. Allotment is done to all applicants by tendering process, who meets the objectives of the scheme o­n rotation basis by draw of lots at stations. In the OSOP Policy, it is envisaged that the benefit of this scheme must reach the target groups i.e. those at the bottom of the pyramid and to provide opportunity to all applicants. To achieve this objective, various public outreach measures including advertising in newspapers, social media, public announcements, press notifications, personal visits to artisans, etc. have been adopted by the Railway Authorities.

The products category would be indigenous/ local to that place and could include artefacts, handicrafts, textiles and handlooms, toys, leather products, traditional appliances /instruments, garments, gems and jewellery, etc made by local artisans, weavers, craftsmen, tribes, etc and processed, semi processed and other food products indigenously made/ grown in the area.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager called upon the youth engaged in the local craft and artisanship to utilize the opportunities provided by the Railways. It is an unique opportunity to popularize the local craft and culture, which will provide an opportunity to serve the surrounding places among the travelling passengers.
