Zonal Railways to upgrade retiring rooms through PPP mode

Ministry of Railways has issued instructions to the Zonal Railways to upgrade the retiring rooms including dormitories under Renovation/Rehabilitation, Operation and Transfer (ROT) Scheme through Public Private Partnership (PPP). This information was provided by KH Muniyappa, Minister of State for Railways in Lok Sabha recently.

According to a PIB release, under the scheme, the contract allottees are to renovate the existing retiring rooms and dormitories, or construct new ones as the case may be, operate it for a fixed period as per agreement and transfer it to the Railways after completion of the agreement.

  1. Already the Retiring Room facility offered to Private Caterers are in shambles. When I booked in during the last month, TV was not working, Geyser was not working and I had to curse the Railways for I had to take bath in cold water on a rainy day. The bed linen was never changed and the toilet was in worst condition – that too in an AC room wherein I had to pay heavily on a 12-hour basis. If this is the plight of a retiring room at Bangalore City – the IT hub of India, just imagine the state of other retiring room in small stations. I wonder will there be any checks on these irregularities?
