The cleaning process of Vande Bharat express trains has been changed in light of passengers complaining of litter, food packets and other garbage in the train upon arrival to its destination. Union Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw has instructed concerned officials to change the cleaning practice in these trains.
The minister emphasised adopting the cleaning process as it is practised in flights. In this process, one person will move a garbage collection bag across the coach asking the passengers to put the litter in the bag.

Railways officials had said that the train was found to be dirty when it reached Visakhapatnam even though housekeeping staff did their job at regular intervals. Railways had appealed to the passengers to keep the prestigious train clean and use dustbins meant for throwing garbage.
