The station redevelopment projects, which envisage provision of state-of-the-art facilities to the travelling public, are intrinsically complex and require high degree of project planning, detailed techno-economic feasibility studies and in-principle approval from various local bodies before bidding can be taken up. Hence, such projects generally have long gestation periods.
As a result of efforts made by Railways in this direction, contract for redevelopment of one station viz. Habibganj has been awarded. Request for Qualification (RFQ) for 2 stations, viz. Anand Vihar and Bijwasan (in Delhi) has been finalized and bidders shortlisted. Request for Proposal (RFP) has also been invited for the Anand Vihar station. RFQ for development of Multi-Modal Transportation Hub at Surat has also been invited. An Engineering Procurement & Construction
(EPC) tender has been invited for the Gandhinagar station in Gujarat and the technical bids opened on December 2, 2016. Detailed feasibility studies for redevelopment of Chandigarh, Gandhinagar and Shivajinagar stations have been completed. Further, Indian Railways has also advertised its plan to develop ‘A-1’ and ‘A’ category stations on ‘as is where is’ basis, inviting proposals from developers with their designs and business ideas.
This Press Release is based on the information given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 09.12.2016 (Friday).
