Out of 407 big railway stations across India, Uttar Pradesh’s Mathura and Shahganj have been found to be the most dirtiest railway stations in India. The dirty list includes Gaya, Howrah, Varanasi, Ayodhya, Faridabad, Jhansi and Bareilly.
Who wants to catch a train from a railway station where garbage
is spilling over, walls are stained, urinals are dirty and toilets taps run dry? The latest survey conducted by the Quality Council of India (QCI) for the Ministry of Railways shows that cleanliness has improved overall but many stations with high footfalls fall below the cleanliness benchmark.

The survey team went across all the top 407 railway stations in India and found whether the premises and railway tracks were clean, whether litter was spread on the floor, were dustbins cleaned regularly, were the walls stained, and whether sweeping was regular.
Besides direct observation, QCI assessors also took passenger feedback from 1.2 lakh people and then arrived at the ranking of India’s cleanest and dirtiest railway stations.
