In an attempt to take forward the “Swachh Rail Swachh Bharat’ mission”, this survey was done. Rail Ministry had taken help from Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).

Here’s what he had to say regarding this:

The idea is to make the entire rail network clean. This is just the beginning of a process which will actually and eventually bring all stations on a par to a particular standard.

The result of the survey was decided on the basis of the feedback given by passengers. The passengers were asked to rate the cleanliness on 40 different parameters.


A final official report is under way which also feature the feedback from railway staff, non-railway service providers and will take to account the existing infrastructures.

A long way to go, but seeing the efforts and dedication of the Railway Minister, I am sure we will achieve that.

Kudos to you, Suresh Prabhu!
