LUCKNOW: Passengers amenities at Charbagh Railway Station will soon be handed to private players. Railways has decided to lease facilities like drinking water, maintenance of waiting rooms, escalators and lifts, sitting arrangement at all platforms, electric supply, shops of essential items at platforms, etc to private players.
Chief commercial manager (NR) Devesh Mishra said the decision is part of Union railway ministry's move to privatise amenities and services at 23 railway stations in the country to improve service to passengers.
Passengers have been complaining to railway ministry and senior officials about facilities and
services at railway stations on social media for a long time.
Most of the complaints are about basic amenities at railway platforms like lack of seats, taxi services, mineral water fountains, besides improper lighting and absence of restaurants on platforms 2-9 which also remain filthy and infested by pests
At present, all these amenities are managed by railways and are expected to improve the charge is given to private players. Passengers complained to TOI that there were no proper amenities and poor hygiene at at all platforms except number 1.
There are nine platforms at Charbagh station. TOI found there were few seats at most platforms and those too were in need of repair.
There were no stalls selling essential items. Passengers were seen sitting on the floor and sweating as there were no fans or coolers.
