Indian Railways has issued guidelines in September 2014 to enable participation of individuals, NGOs, Trusts, Charitable Institutions, Corporations etc, in Railways’ efforts for provision/improvement/upgradation/renovation of amenities at railway stations.

All Zonal Railways have been directed to seek sponsorship from Hon’ble Member of Parliament for provision of additional chairs/seating arrangements at railway stations under MPLAD scheme.

The above initiatives are the special efforts of the Government to enhance passenger amenities. Further, provision/maintenance/augmentation of amenities including drinking water, toilet facility and seating arrangements at railway stations is a continuous process and is undertaken subject to inter-se priority and availability of funds.

With a view to improve the standard of cleanliness, Railways have planned multi pronged action by synergizing technology, education of users, provision of mechanized equipments and penalty provisions. More info
