The Ministry of Railways has mandated the Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA) to carry out the redevelopment of 10 railway stations through NBCC and 1 stations through IRCON. The entire expenditure cost of redevelopment of the stations will be met by leveraging commercial development of spare railway land/airspace in and around the station.
