Indian Railways: Do 30 squats for free ticket at this railway station
Fitness always pays off and the Indian Railways, under its initiative to promote the culture of fitness among the people, wants you to save your hard earned money. As little as only thirty squats can get you a free platform ticket at the Anand Vihar railway station in the national capital now as part of the railways’ Fit India initiative.
In a first-of-its-kind scheme, the Indian Railways has installed a squat machine at the Anand Vihar station and 30 squats in 180 seconds in front of the machine will generate a free platform ticket.
Railway Minister Piyush Goyal posted a video clip of young man doing squats on Twitter and wrote: “Savings along with fitness. To encourage fitness, a unique experiment has been on at Delhi’s Anand Vihar railway station. Platform tickets can be had for free after exercising on the squat machine installed here.”
फिटनेस के साथ बचत भी: दिल्ली के आनंद विहार रेलवे स्टेशन पर फिटनेस को प्रोत्साहित करने के लिए अनूठा प्रयोग किया गया है।

Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju responded and said: “What a unique step by Railway Minister Piyush Goyalji. Fitness for free and saving money too! Exercise in front of this machine at Anand Vihar railway station in Delhi and get a free platform ticket. Let’s make Narendra Modiji’s initiated FitIndiaMovement a people’s movement.”
Modi had started the ‘Fit India’ movement at the Indira Gandhi Stadium here on August 29, 2019 to encourage people to remain healthy and fit by including physical activities and sports in their daily routines.
On Tuesday, the Railways launched several amenities at the Anand Vihar station, including ‘Dava Dost’, a generic medicine shop offering up to 80 per cent discount on medicines, a massage kiosk and pulse health kiosk to measure health and wellness parameters like body composition analysis and blood pressure.
