Indian Railways is developing self-sustainable railway stations in the country by adopting the best technological practices and optimum utilization of resources.
These stations would have high standards of safety, comfort, user-friendly passenger amenities, value-added services and efficiency.
With a view to enhancing passengers’ satisfaction and experience, Indian Railways has added several passenger amenities at Anand Vihar Terminal Station, New Delhi.
This station is emerging as a multi-modal hub near which two Metro stations and ISBT are already there and RRTS station on Meerut route is also coming up shortly.
Non-AC waiting halls have been upgraded by providing LED TV and snack bar and there will be no entry fee charged.
Passengers can avail the facility of air-conditioned waiting hall by paying a nominal charge of Rs 20 for the first two hours and thereafter Rs 10 for every subsequent hour.
With the aim of providing high-quality medicines to passengers at affordable rates, a generic medicine shop has been inaugurated.
This initiative is a first of its kind of Indian Railways.
A Fit India squat kiosk under healthy/Fit India campaign has been installed in which 30 squats by a passenger in front of the kiosk will generate a free platform ticket.
Also installed are a massage kiosk and a Pulse Health Machine and passengers can avail these facilities at a minimal cost.
To ensure hygiene at platforms and in station premises, as per NGT Guidelines for Segregation of Wet and Dry waste, twin dustbins have been installed with Blue and Green Garbage Bags at the Railway Station.
