The Ministry of Railways has formulated a new policy for the modernization of stations named the “Amrit Bharat Station” scheme. Amrit Bharat Station scheme envisages the development of stations continuously with a long-term vision. It is based on Master Planning for the long term and implementation of the elements of the Master Plan as per the needs and patronage of the station.

Broad objectives:

  • The scheme aims at the preparation of Master Plans of the Railway stations and the implementation of the Master Plan in phases to enhance the facilities, including and beyond the Minimum Essential Amenities (MEA), and aiming for the creation of Roof Plazas and city centres at the station in the long run.
  • The scheme shall aim to meet the needs of the stakeholders and station usage studies as far as possible based on the availability of funds and inter-se priority.
  • The scheme shall cater for introducing new amenities as well as the upgradation and upgrading, and replacing existing amenities.
  • This scheme will also cover the stations where detailed techno-economic feasibility studies have been conducted or are being conducted. Still, the work for the construction of Roof Plazas has not been taken up yet, ensuring the phasing of the Master Plan is suitably implemented and relocation of structures and utilities is given more emphasis in the phasing plans.
