The Swachh Bharat campaign is expanding in every spectrum of the country, benefitting Indians along with it. The Indian Railways is next in line to embellish the positive outcomes of the cleanliness drive in India as it has allocated Rs 300 crore to renovate existing toilets and construction of new toilets.
The Railway Ministry informed on Friday that the national transporter had developed or revamped 1,800 toilets at 1,400 stations, including the construction of 200 toilets, which are disabled-friendly in the current year.
"Awareness activities were stepped up to ensure a greater level of hygiene and sanitation at stations, at workplaces, at workshops as well as at railway colonies. Public participation and accountability building is being increasingly acknowledged as intrinsic factors in transforming cleanliness profile of railway stations," the statement from the ministry said.
The Indian Railways is looking forward to constructing 2,700 toilets at 2,700 stations while the Swachh Bharat mission remains the flag bearer of these changes. The mission does not constrain here, but the railways have undertaken the building of toilets in circulating areas at railway stations for the locals who would be profited by it. It will ensure general public visiting railway stations under the CSR initiative.
