500 Rly stations to be developed, says Prabhu

 The government is working on a scheme to develop 500 railway stations with local tourism potential under the public-private-partnership  model, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said.

“The Railways is looking at methods and means to monetise the huge railway property and effective land usage for raising finances to offer better travel experience to the passengers,” he said at a fireside chat at the AGM of Indian Merchants Chamber in Mumbai, on Thursday.

He said world-class stations are being developed at Gandhinagar, Surat and Habibganj (Bhopal).

Union Minister of State for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises Babul Supriyo said the benefit of land acquisition for setting up industries under ‘Make in India’ is still not understood by the common man.
