Maintenance of stations including those developed under ‘Model’ Station Scheme is a continuous process. Maintenance of these stations is undertaken by various departments of Indian Railways viz. Civil Engineering, Electrical, Signal & Telecom, Commercial etc. depending upon the type of the passenger amenities at the station.
594 Stations including all major and important stations were identified and already developed under Model Station Schemes. This scheme was in vogue between June, 1999 and November, 2008. Subsequently, a new Scheme was launched in 2006 as Modern Station Scheme which covered facade of the station building, circulating area, improving illumination etc. in addition to the other desirable amenities prescribed in the Model station scheme. 637 stations were identified and already developed under this scheme. Further, the scheme of Adarsh station was launched in year 2009. Under this scheme, 1252 stations have so far been selected for development as Adarsh station. These schemes have evolved over a period of time by including newer areas of focus into the earlier schemes. At present, stations are upgraded under ‘Adarsh Station Scheme’ which is a more comprehensive scheme and incorporates the basic features of Model/Modern schemes as well as provides special focus on the key areas like conforming to the ethnic ethos, quick entry and exists of passengers, smooth entry from the civil road to station premises, better signages, wide Foot over bridges etc. in addition to the facilities prescribed under Model/Modern Stations. Selection of stations under this scheme is based on the needs and expectation of the travelling public and the availability of funds.
Rs. 1649 Crore has been allocated for the purpose during the current year.
