Assam's Railway Stations set for transformation for Rs 9.9 bn

A significant transformation is on the horizon for 32 railway stations across Assam, as they are set to undergo a substantial renovation through the Amrit Bharat Station Scheme. This endeavour comes at a total cost of Rs 9.902 billion. The comprehensive rejuvenation of these stations aims to offer modern, cutting-edge amenities to passengers traveling by train in Assam.

In a determined effort to elevate railway services not only in Assam but also in the neighbouring North-eastern states, a remarkable allocation of Rs 102.69 billion has been designated in the railway budget for the fiscal year 2023-24. This sum showcases a remarkable increase of 384 per cent when compared to the average allotment of Rs 21.22 billion between 2009 and 2014. The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) issued a statement confirming these details.

These stations will be equipped with a range of facilities for the convenience of railway passengers. These amenities encompass a roof plaza, retiring rooms, food courts, and well-appointed waiting rooms. Notably, provisions will be made for the ease of Divyangjan individuals through ramps, along with the introduction of contemporary conveniences like lifts and escalators, as emphasised in the official statement.

Furthermore, enhanced parking facilities will be established, featuring a segregation system for incoming and outgoing vehicles. Acknowledging the environmental context of Assam, the reimagining of these railway stations will adhere to green building principles. As part of this commitment, arrangements for solar energy utilisation and water conservation systems will be seamlessly integrated.

Beyond these advancements, the revitalised stations will foster vital connectivity between major cities within Assam. This aspect is poised to play a pivotal role in bolstering economic activities, consequently contributing to employment generation within the state.

The list of stations slated for revitalisation includes: Dhubri, Fakiragram Junction, Kokrajhar, Gossaigaon Hat, Gauripur, Lumding Junction, New Haflong, Diphu, Chaparmukh Junction, Jagiroad, Sarupather, Narangi, Hojai, Lanka, New Karimganj Junction, Arunachal, Rangapara North Junction, New Bongaigaon Junction, Rangiya Junction, Mariani, Dibrugarh, Jorhat Town, Makum Junction, Margherita, Amguri, Naharkatiya, Tinsukia, Duliajan, Simaluguri, New Tinsukia, Namrup, and Sivasagar Town.
