ixigo study ranks Kozhikode as the cleanest & Hazrat Nizamuddin as the least clean railway station in India

According to a recent study by ixigo, a travel marketplace, travellers ranked Kerala’s Kozhikode station as the cleanest and best station in India with a rating of 4.4 out of 5, while New Delhi’s Hazrat Nizamuddin is ranked as the least clean railway station.    

Furthermore the data suggest, around 40% of the highest user rated railway stations on the basis of cleanliness are in South India. This is followed by 20% in Central India and 20% in the West. The stations rated, not so clean are from Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Rajasthan.

Other stations that made it to the ‘best’ list include - Hubli Junction, Davangere, Dhanbad Junction, Jabalpur, Bilaspur Junction, Vadodara Junction, Rajkot Junction, Falna and Vijayawada Junction. Some of the stations that received the lowest rating by travellers include Muzaffarpur Junction, Varanasi Junction, Ajmer Junction, Bhusaval Junction, Mathura Junction and Gaya Junction. 

With regards to cleanliness on board trains Swarna Jayanti Rajdhani has been rated the cleanest train, while the Karnataka Express got the lowest ratings for the same, the data said. 

Commenting on these findings, Aloke Bajpai, CEO & Co-Founder, ixigo said, “Indian railways has been growing by 6.58% over the last couple of months in 2017 alone and with effective steps taken to modernize it across the board, the ridership has only gone up. We work closely with IRCTC to facilitate train ticket booking for over 7 million users on the app and we are adding over 2 million new users every month. By aggregating data from our users we can provide rich and detailed insights across trains and railway stations. Although Railways has already been working towards improving the quality of train travel in terms of cleanliness and hygiene, there still remains ample scope to improve services across the board as seen in this study.”
