Varanasi Railways Station Gets Executive Lounge With Souvenir Shop & Business Centre

The future is here. Railways stations in India are slowly getting revamped to swankier establishments that offer state-of-the-art facilities. While the rustic feel of railway stations is nostalgic, the contemporary architecture and amenities may resemble an airport. Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has recently launched an executive lounge at Varanasi railway station. From a design concept inspired by the 5 elements, souvenir shop to a business centre, there’s a lot in store at this swanky new executive lounge.

 Varanasi Railway Station’s New Executive Lounge Offers Classy Amenities

The brand new executive lounge at Varanasi railway station promises a wide range of complementary and paid services. It’s designed along the lines of “Panchtattva”. The concept of using five elements-earth, fire, sky, water and air helps bring greater balance and a deeper connection to our lives, reveals the IRCTC statement. The hustle-bustle of the Varanasi railway station platform has been transformed into a lounge that offers a calming atmosphere to help people relax during waiting hours.  Access the lounge for a nominal entry charge of ₹85 plus taxes for an hour. An additional 60 plus taxes will be charged for every extra hour spent in the executive lounge.
