She said regular checks were conducted at the main stations of the division to keep the railway stations clean and to prevent general public from spreading dirt on the stations and to make them aware of cleanliness. As a result, over Rs 1 lakh was collected from 538 passengers for spreading dirt in the stations (under anti-littering act) in October.

She said a ticket checking campaign would continue in the division and its main objective was to improve the sale of railway tickets and to collect fines from passengers travelling without tickets.
