Amrit Bharat Scheme: Three stations to be revamped in Jammu and Kashmir

Jitendra Singh, the Union Minister of State for Science and Technology and Personnel, Public Grievances, declared on Sunday that Kashmir would be connected to the rest of the nation by a railway network by the beginning of 2024.

Singh emphasised the significance of Udhampur in this initiative to connect Kashmir’s railways. He said that in addition to Udhampur Railway Station, PM Modi also laid the cornerstone for the renovation of 508 other railway stations.

The overall anticipated cost for the renovation of the three stations in Jammu and Kashmir is Rs 295 crore, with the highest allocation given to the station in Jammu at Rs 259 crore, followed by Rs 20 crore for the station in Udhampur and Rs 15.94 crore for the station in Budgam.

The ambitious railway station renovation programme, which seeks to update and modernise all railway stations nationally while enhancing amenities and facilities for travellers, was essentially launched by the prime minister. As a part of this distinguished effort, Udhampur Railway Station was chosen and will undergo extensive renovations to meet the expanding needs of passengers and provide a top-notch travel experience.

The 508 railway stations included in the project’s redevelopment are dispersed among 27 states and union territories, with notable concentrations in Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Odisha, Punjab, Gujarat, Telangana, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, and Karnataka.
