Development of Railway Stations - Inputs on Issues
Dear Railways Circle Members:
Indian Railway Station Development Corporation Limited (A GOI undertaking under Ministry of Railways) is responsible for development of railway stations.
With this post, we would like you to list key infrastructure/amenities issues in regards to stations.
Once we understand the issues, we will run a separate discussion on Solutions and what is needed at Railway Stations. We will also take inputs related to stations from the discussion already conducted on Passenger Amenities.
We look forward to your inputs!

I would like to suggest three important things to be attended on Priority. 1.Drinking water with proper and sufficient nos.of R.O-System and cooler on each Plateform. 2. Existing toilets and specially attached to the Waiting Rooms are completely un-hygenic and dirty may be attended without any delay, even on the important smaller Junction Stations. 3. Stations must be properly fenced and secured as it is found that CYCLIST, BIKERS AND ANIMALS roaming on platforms, must be stopped.As well proper and frequent cleaning of Platforms too is not being done.
