NEW DELHI: Rajasthan's Jodhpur and Marwar railway stations have emerged the cleanliest among the major stations in the country in the latest round of cleanliness assessment study.
While Jodhpur secured first position in A1 category stations this year, Marwar took the pole position in A category, according to the study report released by Railway Minister Piyush Goyal today.
Both the stations fall under North Western Railway zone.
and A category stations contribute 80 per cent of the passenger revenue.
The stations are categorised based on revenue generated and footfalls.
Releasing the report, Goyal suggested making the annual study a half-yearly exercise for bringing about greater competitiveness among the stations and ensuring a "test check" in maintaining cleanliness standards.
None of the major stations in the metros found a place in the top 10 list save for Anand Vihar in New Delhi which came in at fifth position.
New Delhi station was ranked 39th, a position it had held last year too.
In the A1 category, Jaipur has been ranked second and Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh third. Vishakapatnam had emerged at the top in last year's ranking of A1 category stations. It has slid to 10th position this year.
Phulera in Rajasthan took the second place among A category stations, while Warangal in Telengana was ranked third.
When asked about the worst-performing station in the cleanliness chart, Goyal did not name the station but said the North Central Railway is at the 16th place, indicating that it was the worst performing among all the zones in terms of cleanliness.
The railways is divided into 16 zones.
"Last year, it was in the 15th place. We will take it up," the minister said, highlighting the unique challenges confronting the zone.
"The zone is saturated, has over utilised infrastructure and passing through difficult times," he said.
The North Central zone is headquartered in Allahabad and the routes passing through it have over 110 per cent capacity utilisation.
The North Western Railway topped in cleanliness zone-wise, followed by South Central Railway while East Coast Railway was ranked third.
According to the survey report, compared to 2017, there is nine per cent improvement in top 100 stations, 14 per cent in the next 100.
The cleanliness ranking, conducted by the Quality Council of India, was started in 2016. Since then, according to the study, there has been a significant improvement in cleanliness aspect.
In 2017-18, average cleanliness of stations went up by 18 per cent, and 61 per cent of all citizens covered in the latest round of the study said the cleanliness was "above average", QCI chairman Adil Zainulbhai said.
Significantly, 47 per of the citizens felt train toilets are "cleaner now", he said.
According to the study, 39 stations scored over 90 per cent, a major jump, given that last year none of them were in this bracket. Besides, 161 stations scored over 80 per cent in the latest survey.
The parameters adopted for conducting the survey across 407 A1 and A2 category stations were 'evaluation of process of cleanliness in parking, main entry area, main platform, waiting room, direct observation by QCI assessors of cleanliness and passenger feedback, with each of the parameters carrying 33.33 per cent.
A team of 160 assessors were trained for the survey and the data was collected on real-time basis through an online platform.
Approximately 1,20,000 passenger feedback has been taken into account for the survey. Not only that, a central control room, operating round the clock, was set up to monitor daily progress, railways said.
Jodhpur and Jaipur stations in Rajasthan scored 977.71 and 972.30 points respectively out of 1000, followed by Tirupati which scored 964.96 points among A1 category stations.

    There are some minor changes to the PNR Forum: 1. The main PNR feed will only show UN-predicted (by you) PNRs which are coming in. However, if there are replies, the PNR will show and will bubble to the top. Once you predict the PNR, it will go away from the main...
