Toilet Stink Management

Can railways please look into addressing the issue of toilet stink in atleast premium trains like duranto, shatabdi and rajdhanis and long trains like kerala, karnataka, tamil nadu express.

Believe you me for those who get seats next to the toilet, it is a nightmare, imagine they traveling with little ones. how unhygenic it can be.

The on board housekeeping service must be given a mandate that toilet is just not visibly clean but stink should be minimised.

Also, seats that are near toilets should be sold atleast 20% cheaper to others to account for inconvenience of such passengers.

I welcome everyones views. the idea is to fix the issue. more

Stinky toilets give a nasty feeling throughout the journey especially to those who were allotted seats near the entrance. Many a times I experienced the same. The toilets are cleaned every three or four hours of running of train but I find that the passengers must also be somewhat conscious about pouring water or flushing after use and it is not so in many a times. Appeal to passengers to adhere to self discipline. more  
During our recent journey by AC-3 T from Nagpur to Mumbai CST by Duronto Exp., our seat was near entrance and the stink of bio-toilet (not only urine but still foul smell) was present throughout the journey. Railways have introduced new coaches, nicely painted etc. for the train, but failed to address the internal cleanliness. Hope stink removal and hygiene are taken on top priority basis. more  
I agree with unhygienic toilets in train, even though railway s have technology advanced biotoilets, stinking of toilets bad odours continue to be same. Especially urine smell in toilets could not be tolerated can railways do something about like using toilet freshener, perfumed phenols. more  
Railways aren't showing any interest in cleaning the toilets or any repairs of the plumber works mainly in the RAJADHANI,SATHABDHI AND SO SO....EXCEPT INCREASING THE FARES . more  
The temporary solution is to
-install Exhaust fans in the toilets .
- Provide uninterrupted water supply .
- While flushing the water should come out with force as in the aircraft toilets . It is not so in the rail toilets .
- the Rail sleeper coach attendants should e given this charge once they deliver the linnen . Normally they go to sleep with us . They should be in charge of the toilet leak and any other complaints .
- Those who are assigned the responsibility should be duty bound . This has to be supervised by the TTE's .
- No point blaming the passenger , give the passenger what is due to him first , only then can the Railways can expect proper usage from the customer .

MORE THAN 100'S OF SUGGESTIONS AND COMPLAINTS HAVE COME IN THE FORM OF RESOURCE POST AS WELL AS COMMENTS . CAN'T THE RAILWAYS TAKE AT LEAST A FEW AND WORK ON IT . more
