Railway Board to Stop the Supply of 'Rail Neer' Water at its Headquarters

  • The Railway Board has decided to stop the supply of Rail Neer bottled water at its Rail Bhavan headquarters for cutting the costs. It has asked the officials to either bring water from home or drink the water of the recently-installed RO plants. However, Rail Neer water would be served during meetings and conferences at the Rail Bhavan.

    As per a report in the Business Standard, this was one of the many measures undertaken by the ministry to cut costs. In fact, an internal note has also been sent to the department heads, asking them to stop the supply of outside food.

    Every official, according to his or her rank, has a fixed amount that they can spend on refreshments and sources say that the board is of the view that this privilege is being misused. Now, the officials have been asked to cut down these expenses, the report adds.
