To modernise the NCR railway network, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will soon launch the renovation works of Gurugram, Rewari and Pataudi railway stations. The Gurugram railway station will be revamped at a cost of Rs 200 crore while Rs 7 crore and Rs 12 crore, respectively, will be spent on the upgrade of Pataudi and Rewari railway stations.

“Gurugram is progressing by leaps and bounds but basic infrastructure like railway station needs a major upgrade. The work was already on and now PM Modi will launch the mega renovation project. Improved railway connectivity will be a major boost to the warehouse and freight corridors coming up in area,” he said.

The renovation work will include upgrade of passenger seating arrangements, train displays, footover bridge and waiting rooms. There will be multiple entry and exit points at Gurugram railway station. Informing about the demand for Farukhnagar daily railway passengers, the Railway Minister was told that the Garhi Harsaru to Farukhnagar-Delhi DEMU train was stopped during the Covid and has not been started to date.
