Redevelopment of Railway Stations to International Standards

It has been decided to redevelop identified railway stations of metro cities and important junctions to international standards with modern facilities and passenger amenities by leveraging commercial development of land and airspace in and around the station. 

Assessment of passenger traffic and categorization of stations on Indian Railways is being done in terms of earnings from sale of tickets which is undertaken every five years. Stations on Indian Railways have been accordingly categorised into ‘A-I’, ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’, ‘E’ and ‘F’ categories based on which norms for provision of passenger amenities to be provided at stations have been stipulated.
