On Wednesday, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said that more than 800 people have been nabbed and 48,860 bottles recovered after a major crackdown against spurious mineral water being sold in trains.
“A major crackdown on those who sell spurious mineral water was carried out at over 300 places. More than 800 persons, including manager of 4 pantry cars, were arrested and 48,860 bottles recovered” said Union Minister Shri Piyush Goyal in Tweet Goyal.
He further said that the action was taken on the complaints filed by the passengers.
Piyush Goyal last month said that the railways have no plans to privatize the national transporter or its premium trains such as Rajdhani and Shatabdi express, amidst speculation that there was a proposal to rope in private operators. Responding to a query on the privatization of these trains and the entire network, Goyal told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply that “no plan has been made”.
The ministry in its 100-day plan has proposed that it will offer two trains to IRCTC, to operate on haulage concept, with ticketing, onboard services to be provided by them. The plan proposed that the trains will run on important routes like the Golden Quadrilateral and Diagonals and connecting major cities. The proposal said that the RFQ/RFP will be floated in the next 100 days to initiate bidding.
