Railway minister Suresh Prabhu said that Indian Railways has taken up this ambitious program of station redevelopment in a big way and adopted multi-pronged strategy to accomplish this mammoth task. 
 
He said we have chosen PPP model and are roping in railways’ own PSUs, other central government PSUs, foreign countries through government to government cooperation and state governments. He said that once the stations are redeveloped, the passengers will get world class facilities. He said that NBCC has now been given 10 stations in first phase for redevelopment and more stations would be given to them in subsequent phases.
