New Delhi: The Indian Railways is firming up plans to join hands with Malaysia to redevelop about 20 stations in Tier-II cities across the country. Aimed at attracting nearly Rs 1 lakh crore private investment, the station redevelopment project envisages infrastructure revamp at platforms and circulating areas.
It also entails commercial exploitation of station areas for constructing hotels, eateries, multiplexes, shopping malls and office complex among others for the use of developers for a period of 45 years.
For facilitating growth of Tier II cities, the Centre, state and local governments provide a

lot of support to transform these not so big cities into business havens and making them India's fastest growing cities.
While cities like Delhi and Mumbai are in Tier-I category, cities such as Faridabad, Cuttack, Amritsar, Jamshedpur, Kochi, Jammu, and Bikaner are considered Tier-II cities.
A long term partnership will be forged with Malaysia on a government-to-government basis for offering about 20 stations to the southeast country, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
Railways have already launched the ambitious project offering about 400 stations to be redeveloped in PPP model envisaging investment of about Rs 1 lakh crore. In the first phase, 23 railway stations including the iconic Howrah station, Mumbai Central and Chennai Central have been selected for the project which aims to make the best use of the assets of the stations.
A meeting was recently held with Malaysian officials where they showed keen interest in the station redevelopment project. While Malaysia is participating in the bidding process for 23 stations, the railways are mulling to offer about 20 stations separately involving about Rs 10,000 crore investment on a government-to-government partnership basis, the official added.
The long term partnership scheme in station redevelopment project with Malaysia will be launched after getting Cabinet approval. Other stations being modernised in the first phase include Pune, Thane, Visakhapatnam, Kamakhya, Jammu Tawi, Udaipur City, Secunderabad, Vijaywada, Ranchi, Kozhikode, Yesvantpur, Bangalore Cantt, Bhopal, Bandra Terminus, Borivali and Indore.
Bhopal station has already been awarded to a developer for redevelopment. Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu will inaugurate the start of the work at an estimated cost of Rs 450 crore involving construction of hotel, hospital, parking lot, office and restaurant at the station premises. The developer will hold the rights for commercial exploitation of the land for a period of 45 years, while ownership of the land would remain with the railways.

Mumbai to Pune in just 25 minutes at 1,120 kmph? Yes! This may soon become a reality through Hyperloop
Mumbai/Pune: Believe it or not but travel time between Mumbai and Pune may be cut down to 25 minutes!
Yes.

You read it right. As of now, Mumbai-Pune journey time is about three hours by train but Hyperloop Transportation Technologies has put forth a new proposal before transport ministry. According to this new proposal, travel time between Mumbai and Pune may be reduced to 25 minutes!
Hyperloop
Hyperloop runs faster than an aircraft at a speed of 1,120 kmph.
Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, a Los Angeles-based company, has designed a new way to move people.
Hyperloop is a concept where a pod-like vehicle travels through a near-vacuum that's contained within a tube.
The firm has asked the transport ministry for land to run a pilot project of its high-speed transportation service.
Elon Musk-backed Hyperloop Transportation Technologies (HTT) co-founder Bibop G Gresta on Tuesday said the company is ready to build hyperloop between Mumbai and Pune, but the decision is left with Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari to go ahead with the project.
"Gadkari has a proposal to build the hyperloop on his table and he has to take a decision. If he wants to go ahead with it, we are ready, and it will be a feasibility study to begin with to lay line between Bombay (Mumbai) and Pune," he told media in Bengaluru on the sidelines of the Carnegie Global Technology Summit 2016.
Asked about the regulatory challenges to build hyperloop in India, Gresta said Gadkari, during the meeting, had expressed the Indian Government's willingness to help the company in this regard.
"I had asked Gadkari to help us with regulatory norms. He (Gadkari) said we are willing to do that," he added.
Among the prominent cities and countries where the hyperloop will be built are California, Utah, Illinois, Florida, Indianapolis, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Spain, France, Slovakia, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Botswana, South Africa, Russia, China, Malaysia, India, Indonesia and Australia.
Gresta said the company has received an investment of over $100 to build hyperloop in these countries and cities around the globe.
"We have received over 100 million dollars to build hyperloop in as many as 20 countries," he said. Replying to a query, Gresta said the first hyperloop is expected to be launched in Abu Dhabi.
