Muzaffarpur Ranks at 165 position in the Top 10 Cleanest Railway Station in India

Muzaffarpur Junction, an A1 category railway station in the Sonpur Division of East Central Railway is soon going to be developed as a World Class Station.

To develop the Junction as a world-class station, the Railway Land Development Authority (RLDA) has invited the proposal for consultancy till January 29, 2021. Earlier also the Authority asked the agency to submit their proposal for consultancy by October 12, 2020, however, due to lockdown and other technical reasons, the same was not completed.

Once the RLDA selects the agency, then I think the redevelopment work of the station will be started. Under the Station Redevelopment Program, the Centre has provisioned Rs. 400 crores for the station.
