A tender has been held on how this railway station can be used commercially. Railway DRM says this work may start in October. It may take 2 years to complete.
Preparation to provide facilities such as airport

The facilities from the entrance to the platforms will be expanded, and escalators, stairs, lifts etc. will be installed. Tenders have been issued for the 1st phase works here. It is worth mentioning that Jaisalmer attracts many tourists, in such a situation, due to the expansion of railway facilities, tourists will get a lot of facilities.
Delay in many railway projects
Recently it was revealed in a report that 3 out of 4 projects of railways are delayed. A major reason for this is also said to be that the expenses for the Ministry of Roads and Transport have increased by 9.67 percent. In fact, Indian Railways is the second largest ministry in the country based on the cost of the projects. But here, 3 out of 4 projects are delayed because a large part of the costs lie with the Ministry of Roads and Transport.
Let us tell you that earlier it was also reported that Central Railway is preparing to redevelop Pune Shivajinagar railway station in Maharashtra. Earlier this responsibility was given to RLDA (Railway Land Development Authority). But they didn’t do any work, so the National Railway Agency transferred the responsibility for this work to the Central Railway.
Media reports say that Indian Railways plans to develop most stations in India by the year 2024. Shivajinagar station is also included in this.
