​What is a pod hotel?

A pod hotel has several small bed-sized capsules and provides affordable overnight accommodation.The first pod hotel on the Indian Railways was inaugurated virtually on Wednesday by Union minister of state for Railways Raosaheb Danve from the Churchgate station in south Mumbai. The minister also inaugurated various passenger amenities via video link.

​Affordability factor

Speaking at the event, Danve said passengers will get the accommodation at affordable rates at the pod hotel, also known as capsule hotels.The minister said that many passengers coming from other states to Mumbai either return the same day or stay overnight. However, for many of them the hotels and lodging facilities in the city are unaffordable.

​'Restaurant on Wheels'

According to him, the Railways also provided a facility of 'Restaurant on Wheels' at CSMT for providing better dining facilities at the railway station, as a part of the efforts to provide better facilities to passengers without any hike in the ticket fare.Danve said there is a plan to set up more such 'restaurants on wheels' at stations like Nagpur, Manmad and Pune.

Don't think so anything will happen. This is a routine practice, each year this memorandum submission happens after that nothing.


Extension from Kannur to Kozhikode is not going to benefit any passengers towards Calicut, they will reach afternoon. Nobody prefers that, even for CAN passengers, does not prefer this train as it reaches after 11.

connectivity between MAQ/CAN-CLT there is a MAQ-CBE train is just before it.
If new train gets introduced it is a good move, but it should be useful for the passengers. No point in providing train like YPR-MAQ weekly as it does not suit for the passengers of Malabar (including MAQ).
