Pune: In an ambitious move, the Central Railways (CR) has decided to develop 16 railway stations in and around Pune division under the Amrit Bharat Station Scheme (ABSS). Under the scheme, the selected railway stations will be developed with improved amenities for passengers.

It is worthy to note that the Indian Railways runs 14000 mail/express trains daily and serves 2.25 crores passengers every day, providing amenities to around 7500 stations. The Ministry of Railways has taken up an ambitious project to improve customer experience for more than 1200 stations on Indian Railways under Amrit Bharat Station Scheme . This scheme is different from major upgradation of important stations.

Since the aim of the facilities is to improve the customer experience, it is felt that feedback from the stakeholders is very important. The passengers and rail users, the passenger users associations, and various service providers at the station will definitely have a more inclusive view on the requirements on a particular station. The stations of Pune division included in ABSS & the hashtags to be used on Twitter to address them are listed below:-
