Nagpur station on Central Railway was declared the 'most clean' station on CR's network during a ceremony held at CST on Tuesday as part of 61st Railway Week celebrations.

In a statement, CR authorities said 'the Best Station for cleanliness was won by Nagpur station of Nagpur Division and Best Kept Garden at Station was won by Lonavala station of Mumbai Division'.

Incidentally, Solapur was the only station of CR in the top 10 list of clean stations as per the Assessment of Cleanliness at Major Stations report submitted by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).

Solapur was ranked 4th among the larger A1 category stations with Western Railway's Surat station coming in first. The only CR station in the A category list in the assessment report was Nashik at number 6.​ Nagpur was not even among the top 10 on the list.

The report was the outcome of a survey carried out between January 16 and February 5, 2016 by asking 1,34,654 passengers to rate cleanliness at 407 railway stations nationwide. Railways had called this survey the biggest cleanliness assessment ever carried out on the Indian Railways ever.
