Upgradation of Retiring Rooms at Railway Stations
Instructions were issued to the Zonal Railways by the Ministry of Railways to upgrade the retiring rooms including dormitories under Renovation/Rehabilitation, Operation and Transfer (ROT) Scheme through Public Private Partnership (PPP). Under the scheme, the contract allottees are to renovate the existing retiring rooms and dormitories, or construct new ones as the case may be, operate it for a fixed period as per agreement and transfer it to the Railways after completion of the agreement.
Expression of Interests (EOIs) were called by the Zonal Railways under the above scheme. However, no agreement under the scheme could be finalized, so far.
This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri K. H. Muniyappa in written reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
