DIGITAL TIME TABLE BOARD AT HOWRAH STATION
Kolkata, 19 January, 2023:
As a part of ER's continuous endeavour to generate more and more non-fare revenue vis-a-vis augmenting passenger convenience, Eastern Railway's Howrah Division will replace existing 06 Time Table Boards (backlit) at 02 locations of Howrah Station (Old Complex) with Digital Time Table Boards through Commercial Publicity Route for a period of five years.
Contract has already been awarded for commissioning digital boards which will, in turn, fetch Non-Fare Revenue amounting to Rs. 24.50 Lakh for 1st year and the total revenue for the next five years will be to the tune of Rs. 1.30 crore.
This is the first of such initiative in Eastern Railway, that the Time Table board will be replaced with Digital Screens displaying the Time Table/Railway information/Railway messages as well as commercial advertisements. It will enhance the aesthetics of the station as well as the travel experience and convenience for the passengers.
