PRESS RELEASE

METRO TO UNDERTAKE SPECIAL ANTI-LITTERING DRIVES

  Kolkata, 05.04.2024

Metro Railway is going to undertake special anti-littering drives and impose fines o­n erring commuters in order to prevent nuisance activities in station premises. It has been observed in recent times that a section of commuters has been regularly littering Metro premises specially in the newly inaugurated stretch of Green Line from Howrah Maidan to Esplanade.  Though Metro is constantly thriving for providing fast, smooth and cheapest mode of transport to commuters and also reducing the pollution level of Kolkata and adjoining areas, these commuters have been constantly making Metro premises untidy and filthy by throwing plastic bottles, spitting betel juices and gutkha.

In order to curb this menace, Metro Railway authorities have been constantly making commuters aware through announcements, displaying posters as well as counselling them requesting them to refrain from such nuisance activities. Special awareness videos are also being shown o­n all platform TVs at different Metro stations. Litter bins have also been provided at different Metro stations along with bottle crusher machines. Metro Railway’s official social media handles are also being used to spread the awareness messages.  

Apart from that, Metro Authorities has now decided to launch special anti-littering drives in Green Line and Blue Line to nab the culprits who are making beautiful Metro premises untidy.  Special anti-littering squads have already been formed who will move from o­ne station to the other to identify the perpetrators and impose fines of Rs. 500/- o­n them as per the stipulated norms.  The main objective of such drives is to restore the pride of being o­ne of the cleanest Metro systems in the country among all Amar Kolkata Metro users.  

We thank our valued commuters for their co-operation in keeping Metro stations clean and request them to maintain cleanliness in Metro premises in coming days also.
