Suresh Prabhu, Rail Minister inaugurated the process of refurbishing this landmark station in presence of H. M. Bharuka, Managing Director of Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd and A.K. Shrivastava, GM, Central Railway at a ceremony held on August 22. The event was managed by The Social Street.
Speaking at the inauguration, Bharuka said, “At Kansai Nerolac, we are committed to giving back to the communities we operate in. We have been undertaking numerous CSR initiatives under the domains of Health, Education, Community development and Environment to do our bit. The renovation and maintenance of railway platforms in particular is of utmost importance to the public and tourists alike. Hence, partnering with the railways for the revamp of Dadar station seemed like a great avenue to contribute. Through this initiative, we not only aim to beautify the platforms but also improve navigation around the station.”
The adoption of stations is a new concept initiated by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu. To make the 'Swachh Rail' dream a reality, prominent social organisations and NGOs were contacted by Central and Western Railways. Inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat movement, the Indian Railways launched the 'Swachh Rail Swachh Bharat Abhiyan'.
