Executive lounges at 19 stations

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) will set up executive lounges at 19 stations at an affordable rate. The lounge will provide a string of airport-like facilities, including wash and change, wi-fi, internet, live TV, music channels, buffet services, newspaper and bookstand, luggage racks, shoe shiner, train information system and concierge services for pre-departure and post-arrival assistance to passengers. The stations where the facility will come up are Jaipur, Vijayawada, Agra Cantt, New Delhi, Kathgodam, Patna, Sealdah, Howrah, Bhubaneshwar, Vishakhapatnam, Ahmedabad, Puri, Nagpur, Madurai, Bengaluru, Ludhiana, Amritsar, Lucknow and Gorakhpur. As reported, tenders will be finalised by October and the executive lounges are likely to be functional by early next year. Executive lounges at 30 more stations are likely to come up in a year´s time. Once operational, it will hugely change the profile of passenger amenities at these stations. The Railways will identify space at the stations, which will then be handed over to IRCTC for setting up the lounge.
