far the national carrier’s has already identified 87 land parcels, 84 railway colonies, 4 hill railways and 3 stadiums for asset monetisation so far, Minister of Railways Piyush Goyal said Replying to a question in Lok Sabha.
As part of this ambitious plan, the Ministry Ministry of Railways has been set a target to raise Rs 90,000 crore through asset monetisation in 2021-22 (Apr-Mar).
Indian Railways has also launched the Railway Station Redevelopment Program to redevelop 400 railway station across India at Rs 1 lakh crore or Rs 1 trillion through the Public Private Partnership mode.
The program is focused on improving passenger amenities by leveraging real estate available with railways to fund the development.
But how will the National Railway’s plans be executed?
Dedicated freight corridors
While currently, the National Railways has not assessed the monetary value of its land asset, it will monetise the Dedicated Freight Corridor assets for operations and maintenance.
The central government will take up the asset monetization of dedicated freight corridors in stages, by first listing the individual entities on the stocks exchanges and then gradually disinvesting after they become fully operational.
With the Western and Eastern dedicated freight corridors expected to be commissioned by June 2022, the government plans to raises funds by leasing them or handing them over to the private sector to utilize in the interim period.
A crucial requirement the successful monetization of the freight corridors will be the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corp of India Ltd making profits before the process begins.
The Indian Railways is also planning to come out with a new asset monetisation model for dedicated freight corridors, wherein train timings will be allotted to private parties through a bidding process.
At present, the initial asset monetisation plans also include leasing out the tracks to private players to operate trains and allowing telecom players to use the freight corridors’ 2,800-km optic fiber network.
Station Redevelopment
According to reports, the Ministry of Railways targets raising Rs 90,000 crore through asset monetisation in 2021-22 (Apr-Mar) with plans to award 150 passenger trains to private players during the year.
It also hopes to issue Requests for Proposals and Requests for Qualifications to redevelop 50 railway stations by March-end.
The government plans to redevelop stations through the public-private-partnership model. As part of the plan, the cost of re-development of stations will be met primarily by leveraging commercial development of spare railway land/airspace in and around the station.
This will put the vacant land of the Indian Railways to use and will also generate non-tariff revenue for Indian Railways.
The Indian railways will allot the land for a total concession period is 60 years including the construction period in case of commercial land and in the case of residential development, the lease period shall be 99 years.
The National Railways through the Rail Land Development Authority has already initiated action on many stations.
Tenders have been invited for the re-development of Safdarjung Railway Station in New Delhi and Ajni Junction at Nagpur also on Engineering, Procurement, and Construction model.
Requests for Qualifications for the Nellore, Tirupati, Dehradun & Pondicherry Railway stations have also been finalised.
Requests for Qualifications for New Delhi has also been invited.

estate development is approximately Rs 50,000 crore.
Recently, the Railway Minister reviewed the progress of Habibganj and Gandhinagar railway stations. These stations are being revamped with facilities at par with airports as well as Multi Modal Hubs and commercial development harmonious with the development of city. During the review, Goyal advised that lessons learnt during these station redevelopment projects should be taken into consideration during design or construction of future projects. The minister also suggested that while the railway station looks beautiful, the national transporter should strive for use of better materials, as it proceeds further.
Habibganj station is being redeveloped under PPP mode by IRSDC. Once redeveloped, the station will boast features such as ‘passenger segregation based on arrivals/departures’ leading to congestion free movement at station platforms and concourse. It will have ample sitting arrangement at concourse, platforms, adequate parking, lounges, dormitories and retiring rooms, along with Divyang-friendly amenities like escalators, lifts, travelators. The redeveloped station building will have the latest features of safety, security and information like Fire Safety, Scanning Machines, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), PA systems, CCTVs, Access control, modern Signage as well as information displays. It is being revamped as per LEED ‘Green Building’ norms with the utilization of energy-efficient equipment, solar energy, wastewater treatment for reuse.
The Gandhinagar station is being revamped by GARUD, an SPV established with equity contribution of Gujarat government and IRSDC in the ratio of 74:26 respectively. It is a first-of-its-kind project in the country with an exclusive 5-star Hotel over rail tracks. The Gandhinagar railway station boasts column-free platform roof spanning 105 meters, which is the largest in the Indian Railways network.
Redevelopment work of stations, at present, have been initiated in Nagpur, CSMT and Ajni stations in Maharashtra; Habibganj and Gwalior stations in Madhya Pradesh; Gomti Nagar and Ayodhya stations in Uttar Pradesh; Sabarmati and Gandhinagar stations in Gujarat; New Delhi and Safdarjung stations in Delhi; Dehradun station in Uttarakhand; Tirupati and Nellore stations in Andhra Pradesh; Amritsar station in Punjab; Ernakulam station in Kerala and Puducherry station in UT of Puducherry.

डिजिटल डेस्क, नागपुर।  काटने व प्रतिरोपण के मामले में भी विशेष व्यवस्था की जाएगी। पेड़ों का संरक्षण किया जाएगा। केंद्रीय सड़क परिवहन व एमएसएमई मंत्री नितीन गडकरी ने यह जानकारी दी। 
हो रहा है विरोध : आईएमएस के लिए बड़े पैमाने पर पेड़ काटने की आशंका के साथ विरोध किया जा रहा है। लिहाजा, इस मामले को लेकर गडकरी ने रविवार को उच्च स्तरीय बैठक ली। उनके अनुसार दो माह में नई डिजाइन तैयार कर ली जाएगी। तोड़े गए वृक्षों को रिंग रोड, राष्ट्रीय महामार्ग पर प्रतिरोपण किया जाएगा। प्रदूषण टालने के लिए सीएनजी पर चलनेवाली मशीनरी चलाने के निर्देश कंपनी के व्यवस्थापक संचालक को दिए गए हैं। गडकरी ने दावा किया है कि पूरा निर्माण कार्य पर्यावरण पूरक रहेगा। रेलवे की 200

एकड़ जमीन है। पहले चरण में 44 एकड़ जमीन का भूमि अधिग्रहण व रेलवे विभाग के पुनर्वसन पर जोर दिया जाएगा। प्रकल्प के लिए कानकोर की जमीन लेने के लिए जिलाधकारी से कहा गया है। कानकोर को सिंदी रेलवे के ड्रायपोर्ट में दोगुना जमीन दी जाएगी। इसके अलावा सिंचाई, चिकित्सा विभाग व खाद्य महामंडल को जमीन देने का प्रस्ताव है। करीब 600 एकड़ जमीन पर यह प्रकल्प रहेगा। विभाग ने 1200 करोड़ दिए है। इस प्रकल्प से करीब 10 हजार लोगों को रोजगार मिलेगा। 
प्रकल्प के लिए करें सहयोग : विकास कार्यों का जिक्र करते हुए गडकरी ने विविध प्रकल्पों के लिए नागरिकों के सहयोग का आह्वान किया। शहर में जल यातायात का संकल्प दोहराते हुए उन्होंने कहा कि अंबाझरी से पारडी तक जल यातायात शुरू किया जाएगा। रेलवे व राष्ट्रीय महामार्ग प्राधिकरण की संयुक्त कंपनी के माध्यम से यह प्रकल्प तैयार किए जाएंगे। उन्होंने नागरिकोें से आह्वान किया कि वे विविध प्रकल्पों के लिए सहयोग दें। कोई गलती हो तो सुधारी जाएगी। फिलहाल डेढ़ लाख यात्री क्षमता की योजना है। लेकिन ब्राॅडगेज मेट्रो व बुलेट ट्रेन के लिए आवश्यक ठहराव का विचार कर 5 से 7 लाख तक यात्री क्षमता रहेगी।

NAGPUR: Though there will be no new announcements of trains or railway projects in the budget that will be presented by finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on February 1, 2021, due to the high revenue deficit owing to Covid-19, the Indian Railways is likely to opt for more high speed and dedicated freight corridors.
The overall thrust of the budget is expected to push hard for spending on infrastructure and building capacity to create jobs and speed up growth in various sectors.
The Indian Railways’ maiden draft, the National Rail Plan (NRP), which was
...

released last month, aims to develop Nagpur-Hyderabad (NHIC) & Delhi-Nagpur (DNIC) as industrial corridors under its National Industrial Corridor Development Programme.
The two industrial corridor projects are among the 11 projects to be developed in four phases up to 2024-25. Apart from the two industrial corridors, the draft NRP also aims to establish a dedicated freight corridor (DFC) between North-South between Delhi-Chennai via Itarsi-Nagpur-Vijayawada.
It also envisages two high-speed railway (HSR) projects between Nagpur-Varanasi (855km) and Mumbai-Nagpur (789km). The budget is expected to make some announcements in this direction.
Railway analyst Alok Patel says, “Aim will mainly be to plan for borrowing more money from markets through IRFC and international development banks to increase railway infrastructure spending. High-priority projects like electrification, doubling, tripling and quadrupling of trunk routes (Mumbai-Nagpur-Howrah & Delhi-Nagpur-Chennai) will get funding in line with 2024 targets for capacity enhancements.”
Patel expects funds for speed upgrades to existing routes in Vidarbha from 110-120 kmph to 130-160 kmph between Ballarshah-Nagpur-Itarsi and Akola-Nagpur-Gondia routes are to be upgraded to 130 kmph immediately and 160 kmph over the next few years.
Bharatiya Yatri Kendra (BYK) general secretary Basant Shukla says, “Key areas of concern may be low Central support expected for non-priority projects like Nagpur-Nagbhid and Wardha-Yavatmal-Nanded lines. Operational projects like MEMU car shed in Nagpur, improvement of amenities at stations in Vidarbha, wagon repair shop at Badnera are likely to see limited fund allocations if any.”
Patel feels projects like Nagpur broad gauge metro, Nagpur station redevelopment, east-west dedicated freight corridor, north-south dedicated freight corridor, Mumbai-Nagpur, and Nagpur-Varanasi bullet train projects will continue in parallel and won't find significant mentions in the budget. This is because these projects will be financed mainly by private investors and international agencies. The process will take time to complete.
