New Delhi: Indian Railways is continuously increasing the facilities of the passengers. In this episode, Railways has started a new facility for women. This special service has been started for those women passengers who travel with small children. For the first time, such a facility has been added by the Railways.
Women traveling with young children find it difficult to sleep with the baby on the berth. Keeping this in mind, Northern Railway has installed a baby berth in the lower berth. At present, this facility has been started on only one train. The facility, which started as a pilot project, can be extended to more trains after receiving feedback from passengers.
Added baby birth to lower berth
The Lucknow Division of Northern Railway has installed a baby berth in the lower berth. A stopper is also installed in this berth so that the child does not fall down while sleeping. Apart from this, this seat can also be folded. Also, it can be done up and down. This will facilitate those women who have small children. At present, this facility is given only in Lucknow Mail. Lucknow Mail runs from Lucknow to New Delhi and back to Lucknow from New Delhi.
The facility started in Lucknow Mail
The DRM of Lucknow Division of Northern Railway has given this information by tweeting on its official Twitter handle. It has been told in the tweet that the baby berth has been started in coach number 194129/B4 in Lucknow Mail in berths number 12 and 60 so that the mother can travel comfortably with her child. It has been started on May 8 on Mother’s Day.
It has been installed in only one compartment of a train. Railways are awaiting the response of the passengers in this regard. It is expected that in the coming days, this facility will be started for women in more and more trains.
