    As a mark of respect to Motherland on the occasion of 74th, Indian Railways has decided to spruce up its premises by launching a week long cleanliness drive, which started from 10th August and will culminate on the 16th of August, 2020.

    According to a press release issued by WR CPRO Sumit Thakur, in continuation to this nation wide decision, a special Cleanliness drive has been launched over W. Rly from 10th August to 16th August to mark the 74th Independence Day celebrations of our nation.

    This drive primarily focuses on the cleanliness of Station offices, colonies, work sites, water vending points, toilets, drains, edge of stations and other areas near railway premises with a special focus of railway tracks.

    Thakur stated that with only select special trains running due to cancellation of regular passenger & Mail/ Express trains on account of lockdown measures, W. Rly has seized this opportunity in its favour to clean the tracks with visible results. While focusing on cleanliness of tracks special attention has been given to collection of plastic waste along with other waste.

    On the first day of the drive, 184 Kg of Plastic waste, 1828 Kg of Dry Waste and 1190 Kg of Wet Waste were collected at Stations, Depots and Trains.

    Altogether, intensive cleanliness drive was carried out at 10 Stations, namely – Rajkot, Vadodara, Anand, Nadiad, Bharuch, Ankleshwar, Indore, Ratlam, Ahmedabad & Gandhidham, 15 depots and 13 trains (including EMU & Mail/Express).In addition to this, awareness drives urging the passengers and general public to keep the trains/stations and tracks clean are also being ensured.

    Awareness messages about cleanliness are being relayed through PA system at station for general public to cooperate with the Railways. W. Rly appeals all its valued passengers to join hands in this noble cause and help to break all the shackles of uncleanliness around us, as a befitting tribute to our motherland, on this Independence Day.

    Under this special drive, various digital & other activities are being held in all the 6 divisions of Western Rly, with proper social protocol considering the present scenario of global pandemic.
