The railways will install about one lakh digital display screens across more than 2,000 stations to disseminate passenger-related information.
RailTel, a PSU of railways, has been given the task of developing the Railway Display Network (RDN) under which around 1,00,000 digital display screens will be put up at over 2,000 railway stations, said a senior rail ministry official.
The RDN plan will be implemented on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad and Allahabad-Manikpur sections on a trial basis, the official said.
RDN is primarily meant for displaying information related to passenger amenities, comfort, convenience and safety. All display screens, which are to be IP (Internet Protocol)-based, will be individually addressable and controllable in terms of context, content, duration and time slots from a central control location.
