With a view to further improve the availability of potable and affordable drinking water for passengers, the Central Railway has started installing 76 water vending machines (WVMs) at all its stations. These machines will be operated by private parties. 
According to the chief PRO Sunil Udasi, “A total 76 WVMs have been allotted out of which 37 have been commissioned so far at 20 stations. These machines would sell purified Reverse Osmosis (RO) water to passengers at cheaper rates where commuters can purchase 300 ml of purified RO water at the cost of Rs 1 for 300 ml of water, Rs 3 for 500 ml water and Rs 5 for one litre of water.”

details of the initiative, Udasi said, “Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) has been tasked to install these machines, which use RO water purification technology that keeps the bacteria away from the water.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, Dadar, Lokmanya Tilak Terminus, Thane and Kalyan stations have been installed with four machines each, Panvel has 3 machines and Igatpuri has two machines, while Byculla, Parel, Kurla, Ghatkopar, Kanjurmarg, Vikhroli, Mulund, Kalwa, Mumbra, Dombivali, Mankhurd, King’s Circle and Reay Road stations have been provided with one machine each.
 In case, the commuter is not carrying a water bottle, the water vending machines also provide purified bottle to the passengers charging extra money for it. Udasi said, “The quality of the water would be checked periodically and report of the water quality would be displayed near the machine so that commuter’s faith remains intact.”

Motorcycles are now parked at a section of the facility for dropping suburban train commuters and passengers of long-distance trains
Commuters have requested the Southern Railway to wrest control of a portion of the designated pick-up and drop facility for private vehicles, at the Tambaram railway station. This portion is being used by motorcyclists to park their vehicles.
Last year, the Southern Railway created this facility for private vehicles, for the benefit of those taking long-distance and suburban trains. A section of this facility was however turned into an illegal parking lot for

motorcycles. ‘No Parking’ boards placed there doesn’t seem to serve as a deterent to these motorcyclists.
“Commuters have to walk for a long distance from the East Tambaram bus terminus with their luggage. Car owners and drivers who enter the parking lot to pick up and drop customers find it difficult to reverse the vehicles, while leaving the parking lot. Those who have parked their cars and autorickshaws face a seimilar problem,” says K. Bala Krishnan, a resident of Rajakilpakkam.
“There is ample space behind the East Tambaram bus terminus, inside the station premises. Valet parking can also be created,” says S. Vinod, a resident of East Tambaram.

total number of 28 ticket checking staff along with security provided by 24 RPF personnel carried out the exercise which lasted a little over four hours. The checks were carried out on four trains proceeding on the Tiruchi- Thanjavur section. Railway officials said checks were also conducted at stations including Solagampatti and Aiynapuram.
In all, 34 passengers were found travelling without tickets, said a Railway release. Fine amounting to Rs. 10,085 was collected from the violators.
A couple of months ago, a three-day intensive drive against ticketless travel was conducted in the division. Over 3,000 cases were booked which included ticketless travel, improper ticketing and unbooked luggage.
More than Rs. 14 lakh was collected from the defaulters as penalty.
A senior Railway official here said that from now on surprise drives would be conducted every week in addition to routine checks being undertaken by the staff.
The drives are proposed to be carried out in the Tiruchi – Villupuram, Thanjavur – Tiruvarur, Villupuram – Cuddalore, Vellore – Tiruvannamalai and Tiruchi – Pudukottai broad gauge sections, said the official.
The objective is to improve the earnings of the Tiruchi Division besides creating awareness among travellers to desist from travelling without valid tickets, said the official.
