Private firms winning contracts to re-develop railway stations across India will levy ₹ 20 as user charges on a platform ticket, which is double the existing price.
The Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Ltd (IRSDC) said that the ₹20 user charge has been set as per the decision taken by the Empowered Group of Secretaries (EGoM) to increase the overall viability of the projects, according to a document seen by BusinessLine.
Indian Railways temporarily raised the price of a platform ticket five times to ₹50 in March to avoid crowding at railway stations
Abhi unhi ke baap ka raaj hai...

Station Ka development private se ho rha hai
Station mein announcements, tickets, management chorr kya Hoga hai govt Ka ?

Soon, Indian Railways to have world-class airport-like railway stations! Currently, the national transporter is carrying out redevelopment work of many Indian Railways stations through Rail Land Development Authority (RLDA), Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation Limited (IRSDC) along with other central government agencies. In a written reply to a query, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal recently informed Lok Sabha that redevelopment of railway stations is planned through leveraging commercial development of vacant land in and around station premises, i.e. redevelopment of stations shall generally be cost-neutral to Indian Railways.
How they do it at SVJR will be interesting. No space at all.
