Water vending machine in Mumbai

Commuters demand water vending machines at all stations in Mumbai

With the temperature in Mumbai rising steadily, suburban commuters have demanded that the railways speed up installing water vending machines at suburban stations.

So far Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has installed 15 water vending machines on the stations to cater to suburban commuters.

The railways had announced installation of water vending machines on railway stations to allow commuters to purchase purified water at a much cheaper rate. Besides, environment friendly containers can be reused to refill water, thus reducing plastic waste.
