Kolkata, May 16 (KNN) The Eastern Railway on Monday launched the “One Station One Product” scheme (OSOP) across multiple stations in West Bengal.

Addressing the inaugural ceremony, Kaushik Mitra, CPRO Eastern Railway, Kolkata said, “We have set up many such stalls in Eastern Railway in which we are promoting local handicrafts. We have decided that this year we will conduct such programs in many more stations.”


According to the government data, under the OSOP scheme as many as 728 railway stations with 785 OSOP outlets in 21 states and three union territories have been covered.

The pilot of the scheme was started on 25 March 2022.

Under the scheme, OSOP stalls at railway stations offer a diverse range of products unique to their respective regions, including handicrafts, textiles, traditional garments, and local agricultural produce and processed foods.
