SCR intensifies efforts to ensure availability of Drinking Water at Railway Stations

· Water cooler arrangements of 468 nos provided across 170 stations in the Zone.

· Continuous monitoring of adequate water availability is being done at both Zonal and Divisional levels.

· Coordination with local authorities also being done to supplement in case of any emergency.


South Central Railways is committed to provide potable drinking water to passengers at all stations across its Rail network. In anticipation of the upcoming summer season and potential heat waves, the Zone has been constantly reviewing the availability of drinking water at stations so as to ensure no adequate availability of drinking water for the rail passengers. Teams of Officers and staff are monitoring the situation at both Zonal and Divisional levels to ensure provision of clean drinking water to passengers in accordance with established norms.

A series of steps are being taken by the railway for ensuring this. Joint meetings are being conducted with supervisors of Engineering and Electrical departments to review the demand and supply capacities of watering at all the stations, for ensuring adequate supply. Additional arrangements are also being planned in case of any exigencies. Water Cooler arrangements of 468 nos have already been provided across 170 stations in the Zone.

Round the clock monitoring system has also been started (to continuous monitoring of water availability at all the stations) through Divisional Central Control office. Respective supervisors are being contacted immediately by Central control in case of any issue. To ensure quality supply of water, Periodical water quality tests are being conducted at regular intervals.

Automatic water supply systems (CAMTECH) have been provided at Major stations (wherever coach watering to be done) to ensure supply of water within least possible time. Teams are being continually deployed with respective supervisors to rectify the working of water taps in stations. Especially, the group water pedestal o­n Platforms (located near General coaches) have been given a special attention.

At stations where the canal water supply is main source of supply, Storage tanks have been augmented to cope up with the demand. At other locations, all the storage tanks (both HL & GLRs) are being continually monitored to ensure adequate availability if water. Supplementation of water supply from Local municipalities is also planned in the station wherever required. Rain water pits developed at several stations across the Zone for enhancing ground water potential are also being continuously monitored.
