OUR MFC: COMMERCIAL VALUE WITH PASSENGER AMENITIES
RLDA is spearheading a transformative initiative aimed at enhancing the Railway experience for millions of passengers across India. At the heart of this initiative are Multi-Functional Complexes (MFCs), strategically designed to offer a multitude of services and facilities to passengers, ranging from shopping and dining to accommodation and convenience, all conveniently located at Railway stations.
MFCs serve as comprehensive service hubs, providing a wide array of amenities for rail users. These include:
Shopping Outlets: Passengers can access a variety of retail stores, offering everything from daily essentials to specialty products.
Dining Options: Food stalls and restaurants within MFCs ensure that travellers have access to a range of culinary choices, from quick bites to full meals.
Bookstores: Book stalls cater to the reading needs of passengers, making it convenient to pick up reading material for the journey.
Convenience Services: Facilities like ATMs offer essential services, ensuring connectivity and financial convenience.
Medicine and Variety Stores: MFCs often include pharmacies and stores stocked with a variety of goods, meeting the needs of travellers.
Budget Hotels: Budget-friendly accommodation options within or adjacent to MFCs provide comfort and convenience for travellers.
Parking Spaces: Adequate parking facilities ease the hassle of vehicle storage for commuters and tourists.
RLDA offers sites for MFC development on lease agreements lasting 45 years. These arrangements can involve upfront lease premiums model.
The Ministry of Railways has shown unwavering support for this initiative by sanctioning the development of numerous MFC sites.
Multi-Functional Complexes represent a pivotal transformation in Railway station development, moving beyond mere transit points to become vibrant centres of activity and convenience. By offering a diverse range of services and amenities, MFCs are poised to improve the travel experience, stimulate economic activity in station areas, and provide a glimpse into the future of modern and integrated Railway infrastructure.
