Putting a leap forward, the division has now allowed providing VR services (Virtual Reality) at Ujjain and Indore railway stations under NINFRIS policy. Ratlam division is the first in Indian Railways to provide VR services to commuters.

In this concept, passengers can enjoy VR shows on Mahakaal Temple and other historical places, while waiting for their trains at the station. From this concept, the railways is expecting to earn Rs 10 lakh per annum. Sources said that the letter of Acceptance (LoA) is given to a Bhopal-based company for 1 year by availing the space of 200 square feet.

This will be set-up at platform no 1. Under the scheme, passengers will be taken virtually to the famous historical and religious places of the state like Mahakal Temple and Mahakal Lok. Famous tourist spots and adventurous points are also included in this.
