Indian railways time and again come up with several interesting initiatives. From turning railway coaches into classrooms for underprivileged students to hiring a Yamraj to stop people from crossing the railway lines, Indian railways go hand in hand with innovation.
In one such peculiar but impressive attempt, Delhi’s Anand Vihar railway station has installed a squat machine. The machine dispense a free platform ticket to those who perform squats, reports IE.
Sharing the video of the same, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal wrote that the machine has been installed to promote fitness.
फिटनेस के साथ बचत भी: दिल्ली के आनंद विहार रेलवे स्टेशन पर फिटनेस को प्रोत्साहित करने के लिए अनूठा प्रयोग किया गया है।
यहां लगाई गई मशीन के सामने एक्सरसाइज करने पर प्लेटफार्म टिकट निशुल्क लिया जा सकता है। pic.twitter.com/RL79nKEJBp

More such machines needed, inc in tier 2 and 3.
Please make it a separate project, maybe tie up with corporate sector for funding. https://t.co/3qGBGE6SOa
