In view of the Swachh Bharat campaign, the Railways has stepped up efforts to keep its premises clean. According to Railway Ministry source, trains will soon have user-friendly dustbins designed by the NID in all coaches.
Barring AC and a few non-AC sleeper coaches, majority of coaches currently are not equipped with dustbins resulting in problems in depositing garbage in moving trains.
The NID has been asked to design user-friendly dustbins with enhanced capacity than the existing ones and also suggest location for these improved dustbins to be placed.
This move came after the Prime Minister announced in “Mann ki baat” programme that Railway coaches need to have adequate dustbins.
Adequate provisions for removing garbage from the dustbins and disposing garbage at nominated points have also been made, said the source.
Railways has launched its cleanliness campaign across the country to keep platforms, stations and trains clean. The Ministry has also outsourced cleaning operations in 50 stations as a pilot project
