Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation (IRSDC) signed two Memorandum of Agreements (MoAs) on ‘Railway Station Redevelopment’ for the renovation of a total of 22 railway stations in New Delhi.
On Friday, the MoA was signed between IRSDC and MECON Limited for the redevelopment of eight railway stations including Andheri, Bandra Terminus, Ranchi, and Chennai Egmore.
“Similarly, another MoA was signed with two other Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSE) — EPIL and Bridge and Roof– on Thursday for the renovation of 14 railway stations including Kolkata Terminal, Kanpur Central, Kalyan Junction, Ludhiana, Hyderabad and Udaipur City,” IRSDC said in a press release.
“These CPSEs will prepare detailed project reports on the development of these 22 stations and act as Project Management Consultant to IRSDC for implementation of the redevelopment program,” IRSDC added.
“Six CPSEs have been selected by IRSDC for the redevelopment of total 41 railway stations under the program and similar MoAs will be signed shortly,” it said.
Further, it said that this step will further accelerate the station redevelopment initiatives being undertaken by IRSDC.
