The Indian Railways has set a deadline of October 2 for the upgradation of toilets at all stations in the country when the Centre plans to launch year-long celebrations to mark Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, according to a letter written by Railway Board Chairman Ashwani Lohani to all the zones. Lohani said in the letter that he had received numerous complaints regarding the poor condition of the toilets and keeping them clean is the part of Swachh Bharat Mission.
Also, he made it compulsory for all the zones to have differently-abled-friendly toilets for both men and women in all the stations. The letter said that the Indian Railways must ensure that the toilets of all the stations are maintained, upgraded to proper conditions of cleanliness, including ensuring sufficient lighting, doors, corridors, water supply, proper flooring, fittings and fixtures, and are made ready by the end of September, 2018 to mark the 150th birth anniversary of the Father of the Nation.
