Aiming to create awareness among masses to maintain hygiene on railway premises and make cleanliness a habit while travelling, the Railways on Saturday launched ‘Swachhta Saptah’, a nine-day-long public outreach programme.
Marking Day 2 of the programme as Swachh Station Diwas (Clean Station Day), the Northern Railway organised several theme-based programmes to educate passengers.
Under the leadership of Hemant Kumar, Member Rolling Stock at Railway Board, officials of the Northern Railway cleaned the Delhi Junction station on Sunday.
Kumar inspected the station, checked passenger amenities and took stock of equipment and materials available to maintain cleanliness at the facility. He also inspected the bed rolls.
Officers and supervisory staff from all five divisions under the Northern Railway conducted cleanliness drives at various stations and depots.
They especially reviewed the availability and functionality of cleaning machines and equipment, uniform and other accessories for the cleaning staff and dustbins at stations.
As part of the drive, a total of 257 people have been booked for littering on station premises and Rs 19,860 has been collected as fine from them.
A nukkad natak (street play), based on maintaining cleanliness on station premises, was also organised at the Delhi junction.
