Delhi to get 3 swanky Indian Railways stations! Indian Railways is all set to give three railway stations in the national capital – Anand Vihar, Bijwasan, New Delhi an airport-like makeover. The Anand Vihar Terminal and Bijwasan railway stations will be redeveloped by the Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation (IRSDC), while the redevelopment of the New Delhi railway station (NDLS) will be done by the Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) under the public-private partnership (PPP) mode. Once all the redevelopment work is complete, these railway stations will not only boast a swanky makeover but also various passenger-friendly facilities.
The New Delhi railway station revamp project will be done at a cost of Rs 6,500 crore. The station will be transformed into a world-class transit hub with the development of commercial components like hotel, offices, retail areas, etc. The first phase of the station redevelopment project will involve the renovation of around 110 acres of land. The station will boast separate entry/exit points for arriving and departing passengers. An elevated concourse will be developed at the station and the 16 station platforms will be refurbished. Additionally, a multi-level car parking facility is also likely to come up.
