As part of preparations for the 550th birth anniversary celebrations of Guru Nanak Dev at Sultanpur Lodhi, divisional railway authorities have prepared a chart displaying a list of 14 special trains and route maps. These charts will be put on display for passengers at all major railway stations of the division.
The design of the chart was approved by divisional railway manager (DRM) Rajesh Aggarwal on Monday evening during a meeting with other officials concerned.
Apart from highlighting the details of the 14 special trains, which have been announced by the railway ministry for the occasion, the chart also gives details on 16 other passenger, mail and express trains, which are running towards Sultanpur Lodhi.
A railway officer said that the chart was prepared to generate awareness among the passengers, who will be coming to Sultanpur Lodhi from across the country. “The design for the chart has been forwarded to the northern railway board,” he added.
The chart also contains instructions on the ban on single-use plastic material at railway stations.
“We want passengers to maintain cleanliness at the station. Messages on the chart include ‘single-use plastic banned in Indian Railways from October 2, 2019’, ‘say no to plastic’ and ‘motto of Indian Railways is ‘reduce, reuse and recycle plastic’,” said an officer from the Ferozepur division, pleading anonymity.
