The Gurgaon railway station, built in the 19th century as a part of the Rajputana-Malwa State Railway on the Delhi-Ajmer route, will finally get a makeover.
After a video conference with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced on Tuesday the station will be developed under public-private partnership (PPP).
“The CM apprised me of the development, which will be a boon for the 1.5 lakh commuters who use the station daily,” Gurgaon MP and Union minister Rao Inderjit Singh told TOI. “The state government has already asked the railways to prepare a development plan for the railway station,” he added.
Rao Inderjit said the money he gave from his funds is being used in providing better passenger facilities, including seating arrangements and passenger shelters, at Gurgaon railway station. “I often get complaints from daily passengers’ associations about lack of proper seating facilities at the railway station. Now, 10 small-steel shelters, 20 steel benches and 50 steel dustbins are being built at the railway station,” he said.
