Indian Railways have more than 8000 stations which are classified into seven categories based on annual earnings from passengers’ traffic. Of these, more than 400 stations are A1 and A category stations where passenger volume is comparatively higher, which are generally located in metros, major cities, pilgrimage centers and important tourist destinations. List of “A-1” and “A” category stations are available on the website of Railways (www.indianrailways.gov.in) under the heading “STATION REDEVELOPMENT”.

It has been Railways’ endeavor to redevelop the stations to better standards and passenger facilitation by leveraging real estate development of land and air space in and around the stations. A redeveloped station is envisaged as an iconic structure with its architecture reflecting the culture and character of the city where itis located.

Ministry of Railways (MOR) has decided to redevelop such railway stations (hereinafter referred to individually as the “Project” and collectively as “Projects”). As announced in Rail Budget 2015-2016, the stations are to be opened for redevelopment on as is where is basis by invitation of open bids from interested parties with their design & business ideas duly providing for amenities for passengers and other requirements of Railways as per the guidelines, procedure and process of implementation of Redevelopment of stations uploaded on the website of Railways (www.indianrailways.gov.in) under the heading “STATION REDEVLOPMENT”.

In addition, a dedicated organization viz., Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Limited (IRSDC) set up in 2012, for this purpose has been entrusted with development/ redevelopment of twelve stations namely An and Vihar – New Delhi, Bijwasan-New Delhi, Chandigarh, Habibganj-Bhopal, Shivaji Nagar – Pune, Surat -Gujarat and Mohali – Punjab, Gandhinagar – Gujarat, Amritsar – Punjab, Gwalior– Madhya Pradesh, Gandhinagar (Jaipur) – Rajasthan, Baiyappanahalli (Bengaluru)– Karnataka. IRSDC is established under the Company’s Act, 1956 with equity participation of Ircon International Limited (IRCON) and Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA). IRCON is a Public Sector Undertaking under Ministry of Railways with vast national and international experience of infrastructure projects as well as development of commercial, institutional, industrial and residential properties and whereas RLDA has the statutory mandate for commercial development of the identified surplus railway land and airspace at stations assigned to it by MOR across all zonal railways. Further details about IRSDC are uploaded on the website of IRSDC i.e www.irsdc.com.

Since simultaneous development/ redevelopment of above around 400 stations, being the largest transit oriented development programme as well as the largest PPP programme, is a complex and multidimensional programme involving various stakeholders. IRSDC for and on behalf of MoR has appointed a Strategic Advisor for advising MOR on various strategies primarily for prioritization and making out a phasing plan based on the study of various station sites and broad level feasibility studies thereof, identifying levers for maximization of revenue from station redevelopment projects, identification of potential investors and developers, planning and organizing road shows and developing marketing strategy, etc. so as to make this programme/Projects a success. MOR had assigned the responsibility of engaging the strategic adviser and accordingly advising MOR on this large programme implementation to IRSDC. The Strategic Advis or has submitted its report to IRSDC and MoR as per which MoR has launched 23 stations out of 40 prioritized stations for redevelopment through modified Swiss Challenge mode in Phase I. Now MoR has desired to launch Phase II and beyond (for about 100 stations) of the station development program.
