Railways contemplating setting up Station Authority of India

NEW DELHI: In a bid a to shore up its finances, the Ministry of Railways is contemplating setting up Station Authority of India on the lines of Airport Authority of India for creation of additional facilities at the stations and making them commercially more viable.
"We can have Station Authority of India like Airport Authority of India (AAI). We have not exploited the stations at all. We can have multiplexes, shopping complexes, libraries, parking lots and offices at stations," Railway Minister Dinesh Trivedi said at the inaugural ceremony of the International Railway Equipment Exhibition here.
