The Union Ministry of Railways on August 15, 2018 launched ‘Digital Screens’ to spread awareness about Indian Railways Heritage. The move is in line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision for creating digital museums at stations using QR code.
The project, initiated on a pilot basis, aims at showcasing the legacy of Indian Railways through one to two-minute-long movie clips on digital LED screens at the entrance gate of railway stations and also at different comfort areas.
1. The ‘digital screens’ were made operational at 22 stations on the occasion of India’s Independence Day on August 15.
2. The short films will showcase heritage buildings, locomotives and much more to make people aware of the rich heritage of Indian Railways.
3. The digital screens have been set up currently at New Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Howrah, Sealdah, Jaipur, Agra Cantonment, Coimbatore, Lucknow, Varanasi and other railway stations.
4. The passengers can scan the QR code on their mobile to view a streaming video on their mobile on various facades of Railway heritage.
