The railway board on Thursday said that the need to use better odour-cum-disinfectant fluids in railway offices and trains was stressed by the railway minister.
"The need for use of better odour-cum-disinfectant fluid, in place of phenolic type disinfectant fluid currently being used in railway offices and trains, to avoid unpleasant peculiar smell was stressed by Minister of Railways during meetings held on September 11 and October 3, 2017," it said.
The board said that it has decided that all fresh procurement of disinfectant should be of the alternative kind for all railway locations requiring such disinfectants. So, railway offices, hospitals, stations, coaching depots and trains are likely to soon smell of pine and lemongrass.
