Under this pact, French development agency AFD will provide in-kind grant of up to 7,00,000 euros through French National Railways-Hubs and Connexions as a technical partner to IRSDC to support the railway station development programme in India, a press statement said.
"This will impose no financial liability on IRSDC or Indian Railways," it said.
Angadi said both countries have a strong and long-standing partnership in the railway sector and highlighted the French Railways' association with Indian Railways in conducting speed upgrade study on the Delhi-Chandigarh sector and development of Ludhiana and Ambala stations.
"I am sure this effort will go a long way in further strengthening Indo-French cooperation and help Indian Railways in positioning its stations to world class standards," Angadi said.
