In order to ensure better passenger amenities, Ministry of Railways has announced to make available free quality drinking water round-the-clock at railway stations in the northeastern states through Reverse Osmosis (RO) process. Railway officials here said a similar scheme was introduced in other parts of the country recently and it had yielded a better result.

Under this scheme, the private parties would be allowed to install and operate water vending machines through commercial advertising route. The machines should be required to dispense only RO processed drinking water, officials said, adding that the provider would be allowed to advertise on the machines or on the frame used for covering it, as per the approved guidelines with respect to aesthetics, public morale among others.

“The Ministry launched the scheme following mushrooming of packed water supplying companies in the railway stations across the country,” officials in Northeast Frontier Railway said. The water provided through these machines will not be allowed to be packaged. No charge shall be levied either from the passenger or from the Railway, sources stated. The Railway will provide only electricity and water supply free for the processing of water, sources added. (UNI)
