Rails to be maintained Neat & Clean. Especially AC compartments to be maintained properly.
The new LHB A/C coaches have upgraded toilets now.. But why is Indian railways stuck with archaic SQUAT PANS????? When even the remotest points in India For EG. say..those Ladakh villages. n kashmir houseboats N himachal villages... Mizoram homestays.. Rann of Kutch tents ,, laiselmer desert camps... even temple wash rooms down south..our airports and expressway restrooms , in fact even the railway's lounges at DELHi Jaipur Katra...) are all now fitted with Western W/Cs( commodes) . Maximum folks now are conversant and comfortable with W/cs only.. BUT our newest LHB coaches have 3 squat pans and one W/C in every coach.THE UTILITY OF SQUAT PAN IS limited and almost OVER. A/c class passengers are hardly able to use them/ so URINE GETS SPLASHED ALL OVER THE TOILET FLOOR CAUSING ODOUR AND NAUSEA. SQUAT PANS ARE DIFFICULT TO MAINTAIN..they OCCUPY MORE FLOOR SPACE, DO NOT GET FLUSHED EVENLY WITH THE LOW PRESSURE FAUCETS IN TRAIN TOILETS and cause slippery floors... .Instead, Railways should retrofit 3 out of 4 washrooms in every coach with western W/cs and keep one washroom with squat pan for the occasional user. Neatness and odourless toilets will happen easily.. more
