New Delhi: The SBI Foundation has committed Rs10 crore for the conservation and restoration of the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CST) of Mumbai over a period of three to five years.
The CST railway station, formerly known as Victoria Terminus, is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Through this project, the CSR arm of the State Bank of India aims to contribute in development and preservation of world heritage structures, SBI said in a statement.
