The Railways has embarked on an ambitious project to redevelop 403 stations along with the development of the vacant parcels with the participation of private players, public sector and foreign agencies.
Redevelopment of railway stations has become the nation’s integral part of the Smart City Development Plan. Rail Land Development Authority joined hands with National Building Construction Corporation for the redevelopment of 10 railway stations across the country on global standards (Pondicherry being one of them).
