PUDUCHERRY: Pondicherry Railway Station is going in for a major overhaul with an aim of providing better passenger amenities and infrastructure.

The Southern Railway has commenced works at the cost of Rs. 1 crore to improve passenger amenities. The first phase is expected to be completed in a couple of months, according to the officials.

The 440-meter long platform No. 1 would be provided with kota stones, they said, adding that a reverse osmosis plant would be installed to supply purified drinking water. The work of putting coloured galvanised roofing sheets on platform 1,2 and 3 had commenced. Granite benches would be provided on the platforms.

The reservation section of the station had been spruced up and the portico had gone for a major facelift, the officials said adding that the construction of a small bus shelter and parking facility for vehicles had been completed. Passenger amenities such as ATMs, a book stall and a passenger care centre would also be provided. “Already the State Bank of India has opened its ATM and two more banks have evinced interest to provide such facilities at the station,” a senior official said.

The Railways also planned to take up work at the cost of Rs. 45 lakh to improve facilities for the passengers. In the second phase of the modernisation, the Railways planned to construct waiting halls for the passengers, the officials said, adding that an air conditioned waiting hall and a cloak room would also come up at the station.

Besides augmenting passenger facilities, the Railways had allocated Rs. 6 crore for setting up two pit lines for coach maintenance facility at the station, the officials said.

Statistics showed that the station had handled 2.6 lakh people for booking reserved tickets and earned more than Rs. 9 core during 2007-08.

During 2006-07, it handled 2.59 lakh people for booking reserved tickets and earned around Rs. 9 crore.
