Entry# 2029738   News Entry# 283479         Tags   Past Edits
Ministry of Railways (MOR) and Ministry of Urban Development (MOUD) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today on 19th October 2016. The event took place in the auspicious presence of Minister of Railways, Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu and Union Minister of Urban Development, Venkaiah Naidu. The unique initiative aims at working towards the redevelopment of train stations with joint efforts of MOR and MOUD.
Speaking on the occasion, he said, “Smart stations are integral to the idea of a Smart City. We are joining hands with Ministry of Urban Development to redevelop stations. Railway stations are integral to cities and hence must be reflective of its culture and must have modern facilities. This MoU will pave way to development of an integrated public
transport in smart cities”.
Venkaiah Naidu hailed and appreciated Suresh Prabhu for his new and fresh ideas in developing the railways.
The MOR has taken up the task of redevelopment of railway stations across the country with modern passenger amenities and the MOUD is piloting the GOI’s ambitious project of SMART Cities. The redevelopment of stations and the SMART City mission, both the concept are part of the holistic development of the city and hence there is a need for coordinated efforts from both the sides.
