New Delhi station in for a change

If all goes according to plan, the New Delhi Railway Station will be flaunting a hi-tech building complete with organised ticket booking counters, air-conditioned dormitories, waiting halls, ATMs and food courts — in a month’s time.

In fact, the new three-storied building on the Ajmeri Gate side has already begun partial operations.

“The project has already missed the target deadline but work is on in full swing and nearing completion now. The final phase of construction should be over in a month’s time and operations are expected to begin the following month,” B D Garg, Divisional Railway Manager, Northern Railways, said.

Booking counters on the Ajmeri Gate side were earlier located in makeshift sheds, with queues usually spilling out on to the main road. The new building, which is a part of the world class station plan, has been designed to create space at three levels and give a facelift to the station, Northern Railways officials said.
