  • Thanks to Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Northern Railway has taken a slew of measures to raise the sanitation standard of the station.
  • A comprehensive cleaning contract is being planned by the commercial department. This will replace all the existing contracts given by various departments.

People’s Response

  • “Even though we are yet to achieve international standards in terms of sanitation and cleanliness, whatever the railways have done deserves appreciation. Of course, there are not adequate sitting arrangements on the platforms but people can even sit on the floor as it looks pretty clean. It looks good to see the sanitary volunteers around. It’s a rare sight at Indian railway stations,” said Mainak, one of the commuters.
