    Yoga facilities and gym equipment would be set up at Nagpur Railway Station so that railway in the city could generate revenue. The fitness centre, which would be free of cost, would accommodate gym and yoga space on platform one. However, services at the salon, which would be inspired from a railway coach ‘Railoon,’ would be chargeable.

    Railway Minster has also directed to make fitness centers across railway stations and premises for railway passengers and employees.
