Western Railway’s unique initiatives to ensure cleanliness in trains

NEW SMS BASED SYSTEM FOR CLEANING IN RUNNING TRAINS

                Western Railway has implemented a new initiative to ensure better cleanliness in trains. Under this initiative, Western Railway has started an SMS facility through which passenger of trains having o­n Board House Keeping Service (OBHS) can send a request for cleaning service.

            Train Cleanliness Shield to WR

            In keeping with the motto 'Swachch Bharat Abhiyaan', Western Railway has always been in forefront to adopt technology for providing yet better cleaning facilities for its passengers. Railway Board's prestigious 'Train Cleanliness Shield' for Best Performance was bagged by Western Railway for 2014-15 for best cleaning arrangements of its trains.

This activates an Application to direct OBHS staff o­n the train to the passenger and monitors the performance of the services by taking regular feedback from the passengers and OBHS staff. The object of this Application is to systemize passengers’ requests for o­nboard cleanliness and hygiene. It also documents WR's endeavor to meet the demands of its valued customers.
