I love to travel . I have traveled to many parts of India . The journey had one thing in common . Railways. I have been to Guwahati, Jammu ,Hyderabad,Surat,Sri Ganganagar,Bareilly ,Lucknow , Delhi, Bhopal and many more..
Railways had one thing in common . NO DUSTBIN in moving train .

Now all of us foodies we like to eat chana garam ,bhel,tea,coffee , bananas,samosa,chole-puri and what not. India railways facilitates all these. Yumm isn't it. But then what about the leftovers,garbage ,peels ,wrappers & Tea cups !? . They find there way out from window,
Now taking statistically :
India railways expand over : It is one of the world's largest railway networks comprising 115,000 km (71,000 mi) of track over a route of 65,436 km (40,660 mi) and 7,172 stations.[4] In 2013–14, IR carried 8,425 million passengers annually or more than 23 million passengers daily (roughly half of which were suburban passengers) Ref: wikipedia
"So on average if every passenger is responsible for 1 wrapper/plastic bag : Everyday Indian railways produce : 23000000 wrappers/plastic bags/water bottles/plastic or foam cups  etc.
This garbage is spread over 115,000 km railway line ." 
I love Indian Railways  but i feel very bad when it turns out to garbage machine like this.

I have only simple recommendation to Indian Railways. 

1.Please keep temporary Dustbins in Moving train and ensure they are emptied at every station .
2.I wouldn't mind paying a fine if found littering on stations . Enforce this rule and Indian railways can reduce it's garbage footprint .
3. I request passengers not throw wrappers out of window, keep it in polythene bag/paper bag and take effort to put it in dustbin .
4. Have Surprise gifts for Good Citizens/ Safai-cleaning Workers. Encourage them to dump waste in dustbin instead of railway tracks.
5. We as individuals.
Please point out to anyone who litters the direction to closest dustbin .  Ungli dikhao campaign .

Why to point out only India Railways. :

India Roadways is also major contributor.

Image source : http://vadakkus.com
"India has a road network of over 4,689,842 kilometres (2,914,133 mi) in 2013,[1][2] the second largest road network in the world. At 0.66 km of roads per square kilometre of land, Ref: wikipedia"

Do i need to explain more. !!??? 


This is not a Blame Game.  Indian Railways and Roadways is public entity , it's your tax money . It's by you ,for you  keep it clean. 
I do my bit ,you do yours. 

Your's  Montu ;)
