For foot massage and head massage, we usually go to spas. But, foot massage and head massage on the train. It might kind of sound odd. But, it’s true. Traveling by train will no longer be exhausting and tiring.
For the first time in the history of Indian railways, massaging services will be available on the train. These services will be available on the 39 trains running from Indore.
“These types of massage services will be providing for the first time in the history of Indian railways. We are doing for the comfort of passengers on running trains. It will not only increase revenue but passengers also. Railways will earn additional revenue of Rs. 20 lakh annually and will fetch Rs. 90 lakh because of tickets looking at the 20,000 passengers annually,” officials said.
The service will start in the next 15-20 days. Though massage service will not be available at night, which is 10 pm – 6 am. Three to five massage providers will be there on each train. The railways will provide them with Identity cards.
“This is the first time that such a contract has been signed. These types of services will not only benefit us but passengers also,” said Rajesh Bajpai, director, media and communication, railway board.
This is the part of the railway scheme where they had to find out the innovative ideas to generate non-fare revenue. The Ratlam division of Western Railway zone proposed the idea of introduction of massage services. Massage service will be available in three categories- gold, diamond, and platinum. And, their price would be different according to the plan like – Rs 100, Rs 200 and Rs 300.
This service is just like another service, where the vendor will approach you and ask you about the massage. But, the difference is they will be wearing Identity cards.
We think this idea is one of the best ideas to generate non-fare revenue. Well, now you can enjoy your long journeys.
