BOKARO: The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has shown interest in developing an executive lounge for passengers at Bokaro Railway Station here.
Recommended By Colombia
IRCTC has asked Adra railway division to provide 2,000 square feet area at the station for development of the state-of-the-art executive lounge where passengers can enjoy their time while waiting for their trains.
Bokaro railway station is
graded 'A' under Adra Railway Division of South Eastern Railway (SER). However, there are no hotels in five kilometre radius of Bokaro station causing huge inconvenience to the passengers.
Senior divisional commercial manager, Adra division, Bhaskar said the IRCTC has come up to develop executive lounge at the station which will provide facilities like Wi-Fi, recliners, newspaper-magazine reading, television, toilets, soft beverages counters, etc to passengers. The passengers seeking entry into the executive lounge will have to provide their train tickets. "We are in the process of finalizing space for the executive lounge," said Bhaskar.
He added, that to gain excess in executive lounge passengers have to pay on hour basis. Meanwhile, the railway is also in the process of handing over operation of retiring room and dormitory to IRCTC.;

Just extra 39 kms ? That is a single diesel section with low MPS. A Rajdhani is never going to be diverted from an existing route. Moreover, newspapers have no credibility about what they say. We have had enough bogus news articles already. Even id in worst case scenario, they decide to divert RNC Rajdhani, it should be 12453/54 to be targeted because it takes more time than 12439/40. Anyway, this is not going to happen.

The concern is BKSC is a station with high demand but low credibility thanks to Adra division. Besides it won't be early but can happen. Remember how RNC GR was supposed to run via BKSC but it never did. RNC div overlook Bksc, DHN (Gmo), KQR,and ever crowded Gaya passengers. If that can happen surely this can as it will just say, we will just skip 1 station Bksc rest same with added haxaribagh. I hope it never happens but all would agree that it can as it has happened in past.
