Artists skilled in stone carving have been roped in to restore the iconic Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus in Mumbai to its past glory, a Central Railway official said.


The 130-year-old majestic building, a UNESCO recognised world heritage site, has been chosen among 10 places to be upgraded and restored under the government's 'Swachh Bharat Mission'.


The building houses the Central Railway's headquarters and also platforms of suburban and long distance trains. The total budget of the restoration project is Rs 51 crore and the State Bank of India's CSR arm SBI Foundation has committed Rs 10 crore for conservation of the building, located in south Mumbai. -- PTI
