The 15 plots ranges from 250 sqm to 4850 sqm & are spread over the states of Gujarat, Bihar, Karnataka, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh. MFCs provide multiple facilities like shopping, food stalls/ restaurants, book stalls, ATMs, medicine and variety stores, budget hotels, parking spaces and other similar amenities for rail users at railway stations. Clearances are not required from local authorities for development of MFCs since they are declared as operational buildings of the railways.
