SCR appeals to Rail Passengers to help maintain Cleanliness at Railway Stations and Trains

SECUNDERABAD: In a move towards upkeep of Cleanliness in Trains and Station premises, South Central Railway has initiated continious drives to keep a check on rail users indulging in activities by way of littering / dirtying Railway station premises and Trains. Also, rail users are being involved as important stake holders along with Railways, to ensure rail journey clean and comfortable.

In this connection, it is reiterated that one of the foremost area of concern, impacting Cleanliness on Trains and at Stations pertains to proper use of Toilets on-board the Trains. Rail Passengers are reqested not to use Toilets of the train while the train is halted at the Railway Stations, which will lead to very unhygenic, dirty and smelly ambiance at Railway Station Platforms, thereby causing inconvenience to scores of rail passengers waiting at the platforms.

It is also to caution rail users that any act of dirtying / littering of Railway Station premises and inside trains is also an offence and is punishable under the Railways Act of 1989.
