`One Station One Product’ aims to encourage indigenous and specialized products and crafts of the local region by providing display and sales outlets at railway stations across the Division. Range of products which includes Handicrafts, artifacts, toys, textiles and handlooms, traditional garments, local agricultural produce, processed/semi-processed foods, Spices and forest products, Cashew etc. has been identified for a particular station that is indigenous to that location.
