New Delhi, Oct 9 (IANS) Railway stations in 16 Indian cities, including capital Delhi, have been identified for major upgrades and modernisation to bring them on par with the best in the world, Railway Minister Lalu Prasad said here Monday.

The main stations in the national capital and the metropolitan cities of Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata, as also in other cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune and Thiruvananthapuram are among those that will get a face-lift, Lalu Prasad said.

Addressing a seminar on reforms in Indian railways, the minister said he would soon set up a high-level committee to look at modalities for public-private partnerships in this crucial infrastructure sector.

The panel will comprise existing and retired railway officials and experts from the industry so that such partnerships can be established quickly, Lalu Prasad told the seminar organised by the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI).
