Indian Railways is a major contributor to Swachh Bharat Mission and has already taken a number of steps in maintaining cleanliness through its flagship program ‘Swachh Rail Swachh Bharat’.

In continuation of such efforts, a Special Cleanliness Drive has been launched throughout Indian Railways to mark the Independence Day, 2020. This week long Cleanliness Drive is being held from 10th to 16th August, 2020.

The Salem Division of Southern Railway is also conducting this cleanliness drive. During this drive, special focus is being given to cleanliness of railway tracks. Cleanliness of station offices, railway colonies, work sites, etc. is also being ensured. Particular attention is being given to collection of plastic waste along with other wastes.

In Salem Division, special cleanliness activities are being organized at major railway stations namely Salem, Erode, Tiruppur, Coimbatore, Mettupalayam and Karur. Other railway stations in the division also, even relatively smaller stations, have taken up this cleanliness drive earnestly. The railway stations in the hilly terrain of Mettupalayam – Udhagamandalam section – the Nilgiri Mountain Railway – are also undertaking special cleanliness activities. Railway officials and staff are actively involved in this cleanliness drive.

As a result of this special cleanliness drive, railway stations, railway tracks, work sites and other railway premises are sporting a cleaner look.

But, this cleanliness can continue to be maintained only with sustained efforts. Apart from such efforts by railways, the passengers, public and other stakeholders should extend their active cooperation in maintaining cleanliness at railway stations, tracks and other railway premises.

The Salem Division of Southern Railway appeals to rail users and the general public to join hands with the railways in this noble cause of maintaining high standards of cleanliness at railway stations and in trains.

This is useless because it is a great insult for PURE VEGETARIANS as it has same kitchen for veg and non veg food.
Better have good healthy millet food at NALAN UNAVAGAM (opposite to KMCH) before coming to this station.

If you have seen Chennai Beach-Chennai Egmore route, you would understand that a lot of formalities would be needed to construct another line in this section, as there is no other space! Compared to ED-KRR route which would consist of fields mostly.
