These trains will depart ( starting point) from almost all major cities of our country, this includes Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Barmer, Rishikesh, Varanasi, Gorakhpur, Puri, Jabalpur, Ramnagar, Patna, Allahabad, Jaynagar and Moradabad.
According to the program, around 45000+ product of Godrej company would be utilized for this project to drive a vast behavioural change. Godrej Protekt company’s Hand Sanitizer will be distributed to all the passengers, the passenger belongings will be disinfected with Godrej Protekt On-the-go disinfectant spray. They will also provide Godrej Protekt P-W95 reusable Face Mask for all the railway staff who are travelling on duty and to all passengers travelling without a face mask.
While speaking about the program, Mr Sunil Kataria, CEO of GCPL said, “Safety and hygiene are the most important priority of the company for their consumers these days, especially while travelling. Godrej Protekt’s main purpose is to improve concerns regarding their hygiene amongst the consumers and to organize and conduct programs that would help them to spread awareness to maintain a healthy life. In 2020 they already have a successful partnership with the Central Railways”.
