New Delhi, Oct 13 (UNI) The Delhi Metro Railway Corporation Managing Director E Sreedharan has expressed unhappiness over the level of cleanliness at the Dilshad Garden metro station and directed DMRC officers to impose Rs one lakh fine on the cleaning contractor responsible, DMRC sources said today.
Dr Sreedharan, who made a surprise inspection at the metro station yesterday morning, was extremely unhappy about the untidiness at the station, DMRC spokesperson Anuj Dyal said.
The DMRC MD has directed DMRC officers to impose a fine of Rs one lakh immediately on the cleaning contractor responsible for cleanliness at the metro station, as he found a lot of dirt, dust and litter at the station and cleaning material scattered in the station area. The way in which the mopping was being done at the station was also unsatisfactory.
The Dilshad Garden Metro station earns the second highest revenue with the earning of Rs 3.5 lakh per day and also witnesses about 25,000 foot-falls daily. This station is extremely popular as a number of people from the neighbouring state come to take the Metro from here.
Subsequently, Dr Sreedharan travelled between the Dilshad Garden and Kashmere Gate and stopped at Welcome Metro station also. He was satisfied with the level of cleanliness and upkeep at Welcome and Kashmere Gate stations and also found the cleanliness inside the trains to be all right. The Managing Director has directed all Senior DMRC officers to regularly inspect Metro stations to ascertain that proper standards are maintained.
