Vadodara has also opened up its railway station to hold parties and gatherings for the general public. Now you can party at a railway station after Vadodara opens its empty platforms for your celebrations! Any kind of wedding, birthday parties, live show, performances, exhibitions or even corporate gatheringscan be arranged at the Vadodara’s railway stations. Now you can call your gathering at Makarpura, Vishvamitri or Bajva, as they run empty for hours at a time. This new rule was passed in order to generate revenue for the maintenance of the station. But what about safety concerns? According to the rules, the platforms that stay empty for at least 3 hours will be lent to the public for arranging their parties.
