Surat city railway station redevelopment: Indian Railways hopes to begin the redevelopment work on the Surat station by January 2019. Earlier this month, the deadline for bidding for the redevelopment of Surat city railway station was extended from October 15 to October 31 by Indian Railway Stations Development Corporation (IRSDC).
The decision was taken to give a chance to new companies that wish to enter the race for the mega project. According to a TOI report, Indian Railways will provide rights to 8.75 lakh sq m area for 90 years to the company that will be awarded the bid for the project. Once the financial and technical bids are opened on November 1, the redevelopment plan is likely to begin within 90 to 120 days.
