Railway Board has mandated RLDA for redevelopment of 10 railway stations through NBCC & 1 stations through IRCON. The stations identified for redevelopment through NBCC are Gomtinagar, Charbagh(Lucknow), Tirupati, Nellore, Puducherry, Ernakulam, Kota, Madgaon, Delhi Sarai Rohilla & Thane(New) and Delhi Safdarjung through IRCON.
The scheme of station redevelopment is in synergy with Smart City Project launched by Govt. of India. The entire cost of station redevelopment is to be met by leveraging commercial development of spare railway land/airspace in and around the station. The facilities proposed in a redeveloped station in Smart Cities include congestion free non-conflicting entry/exit to the station premises, segregation of arrival/departure of passengers, adequate concourse without overcrowding, integration of both sides of city wherever feasible, integration with other modes of transport system like Bus, Metro etc. user friendly international signage etc.
