In the election year, Rajasthan is in for a special treat as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to bestow a valuable gift on August 6, 2023. As part of this generous gesture, 40 railway stations in Rajasthan will be transformed into world-class facilities. The Prime Minister will be virtually present for the foundation stone program, and celebrations will be held at these railway stations to commemorate the occasion. As per railway officials, the Amrit Bharat Station Scheme is currently underway, aiming to revitalize 500 railway stations throughout the country. Among these, 40 stations in Rajasthan, such as Jaipur Junction, Gandhinagar, Jaisalmer, Falna, Bandikui, Narnaul, Pali Marwar, and Mavli, have been selected for rejuvenation.
The redevelopment of these 40 railway stations will incur an expenditure of around 2 thousand crore rupees. The project aims to enhance passenger facilities significantly at these stations. The development plan includes the construction of new buildings, parking areas, foot overbridges, game zones, and food zones. What makes this initiative even more special is the inclusion of smaller stations in the redevelopment program. Additionally, specific attention is being given to Jaipur, Gandhinagar, and Jaisalmer stations, as they are being transformed into world-class facilities.
This development is likely to have a positive impact on tourism and economic growth in the state, as it will facilitate smoother travel for tourists visiting popular destinations in Rajasthan. Moreover, the initiative reflects the government's commitment to modernize infrastructure and improve transportation facilities across the country.
