New Delhi: 17 stations on Delhi’s 35 km long ring rail network could soon get a makeover if the Railway Board approves a proposal by the IRSDC to commercially develop them, officials said. The officials said, the ring rail, constructed in 1975, links with the 231 km Delhi Metro network at 7 locations and this, creates a potential for investment.

Among the stations likely to get a facelift are-

  • Lajpat Nagar
  • Lodi Colony
  • Sarojini Nagar
  • Safdarjung
  • Chanakyapuri

More Information:

  • S K Lohia, Managing Director, IRSDC (Indian Railway Station Development Corporation) said,”We have given a proposal to the Board to develop 17 of the 21 stations commercially. These stations are under-utilised and can be developed to generate revenue.”
  • Also, the IRSDC is in-charge of redeveloping 600 railway stations across India.
  • Lohia said,”This is an example of transit oriented development. We will do a comprehensive study once our plan is approved by the board.”
  • The area around these stations will be developed commercially and hotels, restaurants, hospitals, shops, parlours, games parlours and residential complexes would be constructed, Officials said.
