This gets everyone's attention!  Would you believe that if you exercise on a particular railway station, you get a free ticket? Read on.

Squats is a type of exercise that everyone can do to build muscle strength. And on Anand Vihar station in New Delhi, you can do so to get a free ticket.

All you have to do it do the exercise in front of the ticket vending machine. A special raised platform has been made in front of the machine to enable people to perform the exercise. And when you exercise in front of this machine, it gives you a free platform ticket. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal even tweeted about this quirky initiative taken up by the railways.
