Godrej Protekt, personal and home hygiene brand from Godrej Consumer Products Limited, embarked on a hygiene-based safe rail travel program in partnership with the Northern Railways zone of Indian Railways. This program, covering both passengers and railways staff, aims to boost hygiene quotient as well as equip them with hygiene solutions during their rail journeys.  As India deals with the ongoing wave of COVID-19, this travel hygiene program will be vital to empower people to take necessary precautions as they make their essential and unavoidable rail journeys. This will also help migrant workers heading back to their hometowns due to the lockdown in some cities.
The program will cover 25 long-distance trains departing from 20 major cities such as Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Lucknow, Kota, Barmer, Bikaner, Rishikesh, Varanasi, Gorakhpur, Puri, Jabalpur, Ramnagar, Dhanbad, Patna, Allahabad, Jaynagar, and Moradabad. While some of the trains may come under different railway zones, all trains will pass through the Northern Railways network. The initiative will benefit passengers travelling from 12 Indian states including Maharashtra, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Chandigarh, Gujarat, Punjab, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jharkhand and Bihar along with 2 union territories which are Delhi and Chandigarh
Speaking about the program, Sunil Kataria, CEO – India and SAARC, Godrej Consumer Products Limited (GCPL), said, “Safety and hygiene are priorities for consumers these days, particularly so when they are travelling. Godrej Protekt’s purpose is to alleviate hygiene concerns of consumers and champion programs which helps to spread awareness of right ways to maintain hygiene. In 2020, we were the first-ever hygiene brand to partner with Indian Railways during COVID-19 times to promote travel hygiene. we have had a very successful partnership with the Central Railways where we managed to make an impact and drive positive behavioural change. We are delighted to continue the partnership this year with Northern Railways, to contribute and build a safe travel ecosystem in these unprecedented times. This will be backed by our expertise in the hygiene space and inclusion of key Protekt offerings such as hand sanitizers, disinfectant sprays and masks.”
Commenting on the joint program, Smt. Rekha Sharma, Sr. Divisional Commercial Manager, Northern Railway, Moradabad, said “We are pleased to partner with Godrej Protekt for this travel hygiene program which is very relevant in the current context. The initiative will cover passengers traveling from cities across the country to destinations located in the Northern Railways network.
