'SWR 2nd cleanest railway zone'

 The South Western Railway (SWR) has been rated the second-most clean zone among the 17 zones in a recent survey conducted to measure cleanliness under ‘Swachh Rail, Swachh Bharath Abhiyan.’

An official release from the SWR on Friday said, “In terms of percentage of clean stations, SWR has bagged second place with 47% of stations being in top levels of cleanliness.”

The survey was conducted by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation along with other government organisations. The aim was to evaluate various indices in the passenger interface areas of the railway station, as well as the mechanism in use and also to identify satisfaction levels among customers and the railways’ shortcomings.

The survey covered 407 major railway stations across the country — 75 A1 category stations and 332 A category stations, said the release.

A few stations such as Bengaluru, Yeshwantpur, Bangarpet and the divisional headquarters at Mysuru have also managed to figure in the clean stations category. Vasco da Gama railway junction was rated as the third cleanest railway station in the entire country.
