This is not the first station to undergo such a transformation though as several others have undergone massive repairs over the past few months. Stations such as Jaipur, Mathura, Haridwar, Lonavala and Sainagar Shirdi are among those which have benefited under this initiative. These stations have been equipped with LED lighting, new benches, improved waiting halls and lounges, improved toilet facilities etc.
The ministry announced that while as many as 68 railway stations will be revamped by the end of this year, almost 690 will have "airport-standard" lighting. The Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC), which is a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) for developing of Indian Railway stations has invested a staggering Rs 7500 crores for the redevelopment of almost 50 stations in the country.
