CHENNAI: The Indian Railways has come out with a policy which “encourages viable proposals for generating revenue from non-conventional resources”.

One of them is to rent out station buildings for a wide variety of events, including wedding ceremonies.

In response to a unstarred question in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday, the ministry replied that portions of stations which were less busy could be rented out for marriage ceremonies & other programmes.

More Information:

  • Zonal railways & divisions have been empowered under the policy to take the decision & work out the modalities of which stations to rent out and which part of the station would be rented out for the ceremony.
  • The focus would be on revenue maximisation.
  • Renting out railway stations for ceremonies is part of the new non-fare revenue policy.
  • A separate directorate has been created for this purpose.
  • Countries like Japan earn up to 30% from non-traditional sources.
