When it comes to the Indian Railways, the most frequently raised complaint is that the toilets are filthy. Now, here is some good news for everyone. In order to maintain cleanliness in the trains, the Indian Railways has adopted a variety of measures. The most recent development is the introduction of new toilet designs. The upgraded toilets were inspected by Ashwini Vaishnaw, minister of railways. The minister posted a video of himself inspecting the new toilet.

Ashwini Vaishnaw took to his official Twitter handle and shared the video. His caption read, "Inspected the new upgraded toilet designs for existing coaches." The video shows before and after renovation visuals of the train's mirror, wash basin, and toilet seats. A representative is seen briefing the minister on the completed work.

The Indian Railways received praise from Twitter users for introducing new train restroom designs. However, many people have pointed out that the existing toilets are in disrepair and that they should be improved before considering new designs.

One user wrote, "Sir today travelled from tirupur to tirupati by 16382. Water stagnation in floor is obvious & bad odour in toilet. Water dispenser press button very hard even for strong adults. Also reserved compartments full with non reserved passengers."
