Pune has the dirtiest station

Surat, Rajkot and Bilaspur are among the cleanest train stations in the country, followed by Solapur, Mumbai Central and Chandigarh, according to a preliminary survey commissioned by the Railways.
The stations at Bhubanes war and Vadodara are next in the cleanliness ladder among the 75 A1-category stations which were surveyed.
Pune has the dirtiest station, followed by Mughalsarai, Guwahati, Nizamuddin (Delhi), Sealdah and Kanpur Central. Others found at the bottom of the ladder are Bhopal, Muzaffarpur, Thrisur, Raipur, Varanasi and Delhi.
Among the top 10 cleanest stations in `A' category (332 stations) are Beas (Punjab), Jamnagar, Gandhidham and Vasco-Da-Gama (Goa). Shahganj, Ballia and Janghai (Uttar Pradesh), Madhubani and Bakhtiyarpur (Bihar) and Raichur (Karnataka) are among the 10 least clean stations.
All 75 A-1and 332 A category stations across 16 zonal railways were surveyed based on passenger perception on cleanliness at the stations.
Releasing the preliminary report, railway minister Suresh Prabhu said, “The idea is to make the entire rail network clean. This is just the beginning of a process which will actually and eventually bring all stations on par with a particular standard.“
Prabhu said the move is aimed at improving cleanliness at 8,000 stations across the country and take forward the `Swachh Rail, Swachh Bharat' mission.
