The project includes makeover of 36 Railway stations across Central and Western suburban lines in Mumbai between 2nd to 8th October 2016.

The initiative involves beautification of station areas through thematic paintings that capture the flavor of the station and its surrounds.

The total paintable area is estimated to be close to one lakh square feet and spans booking windows, platform entrances, and foot over-bridges.
