Low-cost sanitary pads and condoms to be sold at railway stations

NEW DELHI: According to new toilet policy which is recently approved by railway board, “Condoms and sanitary pads will now be sold at toilets both inside and outside railway stations.”

Due to lack of proper sanitation facilities in and around the station premises, especially nearby slums and villages, were often found defecating in the open and urinating in station premises which made the surroundings unhygienic which is not good for health.

To build awareness of hygiene the railways is utilising the station to set up separate toilets for men and women.
