When it comes to amazing railways stations in India, the state of Rajasthan has a lot to be proud of. Jodhpur railway station has bagged the top position for being the cleanest railway station in India for the second time. Jaipur another railway station of the North-Western Railway (NWR) has bagged the second spot. These awards were given by the Union Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation and is definitely a proud moment for the government of Rajasthan.
We all know that when it comes to travelling by train, the aspect of sanitation and hygiene of the railway stations remains a concern for us. Jodhpur and Jaipur railway stations, which come under the category of A1, bagged the top two positions in the railway station cleanliness survey conducted by the Quality Council of India( QCI) in the year 2018 too. And because of this, the authorities have worked hard to ensure cleanliness at these stations.
Methods Adopted To Maintain Cleanliness
Here’s the reason why Jodhpur railway station has managed to bag the cleanest railway station in India for the second consecutive year in a row. A senior officer of the Jodhpur NWR division reported to a reputed news agency on the specific measures taken to maintain the cleanliness in the station. Toilets have been built in the parking area and defaulters are shamed as they are blown whistles at. Around 150 staff members work in shifts to maintain the hygiene of the station with the help of 27 machines. In order to motivate the sanitation workers, programmes are held to make them realise that they are responsible for maintaining the cleanest railway station in the country.
Jaipur railway station too worked hard to maintain the cleanliness and hygiene in the area. NWR CPRO Abhay Sharma informed a reputed news agency about the measures taken in the Jaipur railway station. Around 240 workers work in three shifts and heavy-duty machines are used including six ride-on and one road sweeper. They have been able to maintain a unique work station concept that is used to maintain efficiency. One workman is in charge of a specific area for cleanliness.
Well, with these efficient ways the Jodhpur and Jaipur railway stations deserve to be the cleanest railways station in India. And we hope many more railway stations adopt such noble practices to maintain cleanliness and hygiene.
