Apart from monitoring stations for security concerns through CCTV cameras, the South Central Railway (SCR) has begun using CCTVs to also oversee cleanliness activities.

SCR general manager PK Srivastava told officials that CCTVs network available at major stations should also be utilised to monitor cleanliness activities. "CCTV surveillance system at stations can serve as a useful tool to watch whether the nominated house-keeping staffers are regularly cleaning the premises. It can be used to identify people littering and impose penalties on them," he said.

“The potential of CCTVs in this regard should be fully harnessed for effective monitoring towards improved cleanliness in railway premises,” he added.

As many as 440 CCTV cameras have been installed at 32 major stations of the SCR for security purposes.

The SCR is undertaking 'Swachh Bharat Mission' as a mass movement and plans on involving railway employees at all levels. It is also taking up public awareness campaigns, seeking cooperation of passengers in maintaining railway stations clean.
