Recently, Pune’s railway station bagged 9th position for being India’s cleanest railway station in the survey led by the Director of Environment and Housekeeping Management of the Railway Board. And to complement this, Pune railway station will now be installing water vending machines for quenching the thirst of passengers.
Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has assured the provision of purified, chilled drinking water at the station and people can avail this facility by spending just 5/-
A total of six vending machines have been installed in various platforms and will start functioning within the week. The water will be available for 24/7 and with the aim to make water accessible to all, the rates are very affordable. 1 litre of chilled water will cost Rs 5, and the rate will vary with the quantity of water you want. Among the six such machines, two machines are installed on Platform
no 1, where all the major long-distance trains run and other four on rest of the platforms.
A K Pathak, Pune railway station manager said,
Within a week all of them will start functioning once its official inauguration is done.
More power to you, Pune, for not only securing a good ranking but also striving towards better facilities!
