Under its Adarsh Station scheme, the Indian Railways has listed a total of 1,253 stations across the country. Under the Adarsh scheme, busy stations have their passenger amenities such as toilets, drinking water, waiting areas, benches, all improved. Upgrades are funded under station amenities’ budgets and no separate budgetary allocation is made.
