Gone are the days when railway stations used to remind you of all the stink and spoiled tracks with rats making rounds. The modern railway stations are cleaner and shinier. In recent times several steps have been taken by the government towards a cleaner future for the decade-old railway stations of India. Seems like the collective efforts of the railway ministry and the citizen of India are bearing fruit. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and plans to improve the railway infrastructure are everywhere.
The 2019 survey on the cleanliness of Indian Railways stations shows that apart from the top-ranking stations, several others have also shown significant improvement in their overall scores.
The survey ranks railway stations and zones on several parameters such as energy management, cleaning activities, toilet coverage, litter, dustbins, provision for rainwater harvesting, water management, water conservation, renewable energy using solar panels, etc.
The lists have been categorized into non-suburban and suburban stations.
Here are the top 10 most improved non-suburban category railway stations in terms of cleanliness:
1) Faizabad station

5) Sasaram Junction
6) Shahganj station
7) Singrauli station
8) Udhna station
9) Bapudham Mohari station

Apart from these non-suburban stations, the top 10 cleanest suburban railway stations include Andheri, Santragachi, Naigaon, Virar, Kandivli, Dombivli, King’s Circle, Borivali, Currey Road and Santacruz stations.
