Indian Railways’ each division has been given a corpus of Rs 20 crore to develop one station under it as a model station by March 2019, sources said. The DRMs (Divisional Railway Managers) of 68 zones have been instructed to identify and develop a station of their choice in areas of passenger amenities and infrastructure like provision and maintenance of lifts, Foot-over-Bridge, seats, platforms, availability of drinking water.

Some of the stations which are likely to undergo a facelift in the coming months include:

  • Lonavala

  • Patna
  • Howrah
  • Allahabad
  • Udaipur
  • Bikaner
  • Warangal
  • Delhi Main
  • Ambala
  • Raipur
  • Ahmedabad
  • Mysore
