Refilling/topping up of coaches should be ensured immediately after placement of train on platform before departure. The water available in coaches can be used for cleaning of toilets in yard/stabling lines.”
According to an official source, “The job will also entail locking & unlocking of doors, switching off electric lights, fans and closing & opening of window shutters and wet cleaning of toilets.”
