Bhopal Habibganj station will be among the 30 selected train stations in India for which Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has chosen its budget hotel projects. These budget hotels will offer accommodation to railway travellers at cheaper rates.
Travellers who have to board link trains would be benefited by such hotels as they have to stay at stations for hours to board their next train.
The railway had taken a similar decision with regard to Bhubaneswar project five years back, but the plan was delayed due to certain reasons. However, this time, top IRCTC officials have assured that the project will be undertaken in the coming years and the work has already begun in Bhubaneswar.
