New Delhi: A proposed design of ‘future look’ of the New Delhi Railway Station garnered over 17,000 likes and numerous mixed reactions within hours of them being posted by the Ministry of Railways on Saturday.

The pictures show what the national capital’s railway station would look like after its revamp in the coming years. The glimpse displays two highly modified and gigantic buildings spread across the current NDLS premises along with hassle-free traffic distribution around it.

The structure of the building appears to be mostly covered by glass along with various flyovers to the location for easy access. In the pictures, a foot overbridge can also be noticed from the platforms for smooth movement of passengers.

Ample greenery around the station premises has also been projected in the proposed design.

The ministry shared a couple of pics with caption, “Marking a New Era: Proposed design of the to-be redeveloped New Delhi Railway Station (NDLS)”.

While some lauded the initiative of the ministry to establish world-class railway station in the national capital, a section of social media users seemed confused about the need of modifying an already Grade A station. Some even advised the Railways on addressing on-hand issues such as delay of trains as well as food quality.

A user named Gujot Ahluwalia wrote, “This looks great but seems like 2050 plan looking at the amount of land acquisition / development this requires and the potential hurdles with current occupants right outside NDLS on Paharganj side”.

“What is the need of Developing an Already developed Railway Station??You are not maintaining the small and medium Railway Stations all over India and Developing an Already developed Railway Station??At whose cost you are doing it??Waste of Taxpayers Money”, another wrote.
