Toilets in local trains soon

The railways plan to introduce toilets and washbasins on local trains soon, railway minister Mamata Banerjee said on Saturday.

Speaking at Howrah, on the occasion of flagging-off of two more Duranto Expresses, she promised a ride to Digha in 2 hours 15 minutes after three months. The two new Durantos will run between Howrah and Pune (bi-weekly) and Howrah and Digha (daily). The frequency of Howrah- Bangalore (Yeshwantpur) Duranto has been increased to four days a week.

”There are some local trains that run for 3 hours. I’ve plans to introduce toilets and washbasins in them for benefit of elderly and women. DEMU local that will run between Burdwan-Azimgunj soon will have toilets,” she said.
