Against this, they would get commercial exploitation rights of these stations’ land bank for 45 years.
They can build or lease land to hotels, malls, multiplexes and corporates .
Identified stations are Varanasi, Jaipur, Kota, Sarai Rohilla (Delhi), Thane, Margao (Goa), Bhubaneswar, Lucknow, Tirupati and Puducherry.
NBCC will construct commercial and residential spaces on the station land earmarked for development.
