Big move! Indian Railways to roll out paper glasses over this ban
Mumbai: There are around 200 water vending machines (WVMs) that have been installed in the suburban stations of Mumbai which allows one to either fill water in thier own bottles or use plastic glasses. Re 1 is charged for 300ml water if one is filling a bottle whereas Rs 2 is charged if one opts for a plastic glass. Similarly, filling a 1-litre bottle from WVM will cost Rs 5 while using a plastic bottle will cost Rs 8.
Following the plastic ban, the railway authorities have decided to replace plastic glasses with paper glasses across the suburban trains and stations in Mumbai. Image source: Reuters
