Says Kultar Singh, "The station is cleaned at least three times a day. And, while people expect railway stations to be dirtier during the evening time, in case of the Beas railway station, efforts are made to keep it spic and span all the time." (Image by Northern Railway)
According to Indian Railways, on any normal day, 100 volunteers of the Radha Soami Satsang take part in the cleanliness of the station.

Beas railway station, situated on the Jallandhar-Amritsar section of Firozpur Division of Northern Railway, has bagged the award for the cleanest railway station in India! In a survey conducted by IRCTC across major railway stations for cleanliness ranking, the quiet little railway station has been ranked the most clean category ‘A’ station of the Indian Railways. The survey is a part of the Suresh Prabhu-led Indian Railways' "Swachh Rail, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan". Gandhidham, Vasco-Da-Gama, Jamnagar and Kumbakonam were ranked second, third, fourth and fifth, respectively. We take a look at how Beas took home this accolade
The Beas station is renowned internationally for being the seat and nerve center of 'Radha Soami Satsang Beas' (RSSB). "The cleanliness of the railway station is

a combined effort of Radha Soami Satsang's volunteers and the Indian Railways," Kultar Singh, the Public Relations Officer of Northern Railway tells FE Online. "Divisional Railway Authorities and volunteers work in complete sync to maintain the high standards of cleanliness at station," he says.
Says Kultar Singh, "The station is cleaned at least three times a day. And, while people expect railway stations to be dirtier during the evening time, in case of the Beas railway station, efforts are made to keep it spic and span all the time."
According to Indian Railways, on any normal day, 100 volunteers of the Radha Soami Satsang take part in the cleanliness of the station. "See, the footfall on the station on a normal Sunday is around 50,000. But in summer months, on the days of the Satsang, the footfall can go up to 5 lakh as well. On such days a huge number of Radha Soami Satsang's volunteers work along with Railway authorities to keep the station clean," says Kultar Singh.
Asked about how the tracks are kept clean, Singh says that both mechanised and manual efforts contribute. "As far as the station goes, I would also like to add that the fact the station is so well maintained compels people to not litter or spit around. It's a habit that has been inculcated," he says.
Passengers were asked to rate the station's cleanliness on 40 different parameters, as well as rate the overall satisfaction with the station's cleanliness. A total of 407 stations across all categories were covered.

Gujarat has 5 among top 10 cleanest railway stations, Bihar dirtiest: Survey
The cleanest railway stations in the country are in Gujarat and the dirtiest in Bihar and UP, according to a passenger feedback survey on cleanliness carried out by the railway ministry, which says lack of sanitation at stations was the biggest concern for commuters.
Out of the 40 different cleanliness parameters passengers rated stench at stations as their top concern, followed by a lack of dustbins and unclean platforms.
The

survey was conducted at 407 major railway stations and nearly 1,30,000 passengers participated.
The report was released by the railway minister on Tuesday. Among the 10 cleanest stations in the order of ranking are Beas, Gandhidham, Vasco Da Gama, Jamnagar, Kumbakonam, Surat, Nasik Road, Rajkot, Salem and Ankleshwar. Five stations in Gujarat -- Gandhidham, Jamnagar, Surat, Rajkot and Ankleshwar-- are among the top 10.
The dirtiest stations in order of ranking are Madhubani, Ballia, Bhaktiyarpur, Raichur, Shahganj, Janghai, Anugraha Narayan, Sagauli, Ara and Pratapgarh. Five dirtiest stations -- Madhubani, Bakhtiyarpur, Anugrah Narayan, Sagauli and Ara--are in Bihar.
Every passenger was asked to rate the station’s cleanliness on 40 different parameters. Of these ‘absence of stench in the station premises’ was the most important for the passengers, this was followed by ‘adequate availability of dustbins’.
‘Condition of flooring surface at platforms’, ‘cleanliness of platform areas’ and ‘promptness in cleaning of extremes of dirtiness like nightsoil/vomit’ occupied third place in the priority list.
The primary audience for the survey were passengers. Porters and vendors on the platform or ticketed area and railway officials were also approached for feedback.
For every A1 (75 stations) category station, 400 passengers were targeted for interview, while in every A (332) category station, 300 passengers were targeted for the interview. 10 interviews per station were carried out by the surveyors.
On the basis of these findings, the ministry has issued guidelines to zonal headquarters for taking suitable action.
The ministry now plans to carry out such surveys from time to time to gauge the levels of improvement across stations and develop a monitoring mechanism through an e-platform.
One of the key suggestions of this study is to “consolidate and monitor the cleanliness through an e-platform. This can also be used to send alerts. The above mechanism may be on e-platform, which will enable managers to get real-time status of cleanliness”.

देशमें गुजरात के रेलवे स्टेशन सबसे साफ हैं। जबकि बिहार के स्टेशन सबसे गंदे। यह खुलासा रेल मंत्रालय के एक सर्वेक्षण में हुआ है।
रेलवे स्टेशनों पर साफ-सफाई की कमी भी इस दौरान यात्रियों की सबसे बड़ी चिंता के तौर पर उभरकर सामने आई।
सर्वेक्षण की रिपोर्ट मंगलवार को रेल मंत्रालय ने जारी की। इस सर्वे में हर यात्री से रेलवे स्टेशनों की सफाई से जुड़े 40 विभिन्न मानकों पर रेटिंग देने को कहा गया था।

agar hum gandagi hi nhi failaenge to saf karne ke liye kuchh hoga hi nhi .
