Clean India campaign on the railways

India’s train network has got on board with the new Clean India campaign.

The scheme is a joint initiative between Prayas and the India Tourism Development Corporation to help preserve India’s monuments and promote cleanliness at tourist hotspots.

Clean India was recently launched at the Qutub Minar Unesco World Heritage Site in Delhi and will be extended to around 100 monuments, Bernama reports.

Now according to PTI, awareness of the campaign will now also be increased via promotional material printed on train tickets and displayed inside train coaches.

“We have joined hands with the Tourism Ministry to keep trains, waiting halls, surrounding of stations garbage-free and environment friendly,” a senior Railway Ministry official involved with the campaign told the news agency.

Amod Kanth, the director of child rights organisation Prayas, told News Track India that the campaign is about “creating an awareness among tourists that the monuments are their own property and they have to be involved in maintaining them.”
