Why all the tracks at platforms are littered with latrine and such undesirable things? If the track space at platforms are made washable by making them sloped and then washed regularly, it will help. Dont use toilets at platform dont work.
It is not to suggest that tracks to be sloped only the base.

The staff or coach attendants must carry small portable and folding steps to help needy to get or dismount from the coaches to platform, normally 3-4 ft high from the ground.

Sir your ideas are really good but this is India, where "Chalta Hai" attitude and "Who Cares?" are the buzzwords when it comes to social / civic sense.

1. The poor smell of trian toilets is a nighmare for all more so in lower classes. Try this and enjoy: Just burn one or two match sticks and the sulphur in it will take care of the srench or bad odour.
2. How to clean ur back in train toiltes on a European seats more easily without spoiling the seat? Well use small pieces of news paper and use them to clean the back. U can use these to clean the seat also.

1. How the coach planners expect old and heavy passengers to climb up to upper berths in the present arrangement? Pl provide detachable folding ladders in each coach with attendants to assist passengers. 2. To ensure cleanliness all cabins must have removable with disposable containers small dust bins to be used for litters like paper napkin and other wastes.

The new reservation cancellation policy requires correction for the following case (1) If a passenger has got a confirmed return ticket but WL for onward journey, then he can not surrender his return ticket unless onward journey is finally not confirmed. It happens till few hours before the train departs. (2) So more time to surrender without penalty shpould be provisoned.
