Now, drinking water to be available for ₹5 per litre at Pune railway station

PUNE: Passengers are finally getting cheap drinking water after some months at the Pune railway station. The railway administration has installed water vending machines. Passengers are getting clean drinking water by paying ₹5 per litre.

A year ago, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation had installed two water ending machines. However, a few months ago, the machines had stopped functioning. Now, new machines have been installed again. The facility at platform number 1 was inaugurated by Divisional Railway Manager Indu Dube. Hence, passengers are now getting a litre of water by paying ₹5.

Passengers were facing a lot of inconvenience because water vending machines were non-functional. Water taps were available for passengers but the surrounding area was unclean. Hence, passengers were being forced to purchase water bottles. Passengers were demanding that the Railways should immediately start the facility of providing cheap drinking water.

Nikhil Kachi, a member of divisional railway advisory committee said, “A constant follow-up was done with IRCTC regarding the non-functional water vending machines at the Pune railway station. This issue had been discussed in the meeting of railway’s divisional advisory committee. Finally, the Railways took action and new machines were installed.”
