Twelve railway stations in the state, after Digha, are being developed as ‘EcoSmart’ stations by South Eastern Railway.
A full-fleged work is already on at important railway stations including Shalimar and Santragachhi, a few kilometres away from the city.
The railway authorities had announced an upgradation of 21 railway stations across the country, which are under South-Eastern Railway. Out of 21, Ranchi and Digha stations have received the ISO certificates.
Of the remaining 19 stations, 12 stations namely Adra, Bankura, Bishnupur, Purulia, Kharagpur, Jhargram, Midnapur, Macheda, Panskura, Bagnan, Shalimar and Santragachhi; are being developed as ‘EcoSmart’ stations by the SER.
“At Digha , work on upgrading the railway station into ‘Eco-Smart’ station has almost been completed,” informed Mr Sanjoy Ghosh, CPRO, SER.
“A team officials from the state pollution control board will also visit the station within a month, to check if the essential parameters have been followed and implemented properly. Work to develop other stations on the line of Digha Station is being carried simultaneously,” he added.
Notably, Digha station, attracting a large number of tourists, has recently received the ISO certificate for meeting the required environmental standards. As part of the green initiative, bottle crushing machine has been installed in the station and has been declared as ‘no plastic zone.’
For waste management, garbage is being segregated into dry waste, wet waste and hazardous waste before being disposed. Also, for energy saving, solar panels and LED lights have been installed at the station.

जागरण संवाददाता, खड़गपुर : दक्षिण पूर्व रेलवे खड़गपुर मंडल ने दुर्गापूजा पर होने वाली भीड़भाड़ के मद्देनजर तीन जोड़ी विशेष लोकल ट्रेन का परिचालन शुरू किया है। त्योहार तक यह सुविधा प्राप्त होगी। खड़गपुर रेल मंडल के वरिष्ठ वाणिज्यिक प्रबंधक कुलदीप तिवारी ने बताया कि हावड़ा-खड़गपुर संभाग में त्योहार के दौरान यात्रियों का दबाव काफी अधिक रहता है। इसे देखते हुए पूजा तक संभाग में तीन जोड़ी ईएमयू लोकल ट्रेनों की सुविधा शुरू की गई है, जिनमें हावड़ा-आमता, हावड़ा-मेचेदा और हावड़ा-पांशकुड़ा लोकल शामिल है। उन्होंने उम्मीद जताई कि इस कदम से ट्रेनों पर यात्रियों का दबाव कम होगा और यात्री सुविधानजक तरीके से यात्रा कर सकेंगे। उन्होंने कहा कि त्योहार के दौरान यात्री सुरक्षा पर खास ध्यान दिया जा रहा है। रात के समय यात्रियों की सुरक्षा के लिए जवानों की तैनाती की भी व्यवस्था की गई है।

Protesters alleged that 38-year-old Alam Khan lay bleeding on the tracks for a while, and could have been saved if the authorities had bothered to take him to a hospital. A number of trains were delayed due to the agitation.
Thousands of passengers were inconvenienced when local residents blocked railway tracks at Mecheda in Bengal’s East Midnapore district after a train knocked down a man on Friday morning.
The accident occurred around 7.40 am near Mecheda station in the South-Eastern Railway sector. The victim – 38-year-old Alam Khan – was hit by the

train while he was trying to cross the tracks on a bicycle.
Local residents alleged that Khan lay bleeding on the tracks for a while, and could have been saved if the authorities had bothered to take him to a hospital.
Officials said local residents pelted stones at stranded trains during the agitation, which went on for about four hours. The railway authorities were eventually forced to seek the state government’s help to disperse the protesters.
“A number of local and long-distance trains, including the Howrah-Mumbai Duronto, Falaknuma Express, Tamralipta Express, Coromandel Express, Howrah-Purulia Express and Steel Express, were delayed,” said Sanjay Ghosh, chief public relations officer of the South-Eastern Railway. The effects of the blockade will last for hours because a number of trains had to be rescheduled, he added.
Confusion prevailed among the passengers, who were allegedly made to wait for hours without any prior intimation. “No announcement was made because we didn’t know how long the blockade would continue,” said Ghosh, adding that the state government will take action against protesters who threw stones at the stranded trains.
Alam Khan was a resident of Kolaghat in East Midnapore district.
