As announced in the Rail budget 2016-2017, the Indian Railways has launched Janani Sewa, a scheme to provide baby food at railway stations. It has been introduced by the Minister for Railways Suresh Prabhu to help travelling mothers. Under the scheme, the Railways will ensure the availability of some essential items like hot milk, hot water and baby food.

As reported by Financial Express, besides baby food, railways also launched a menu for children between 5-12 years of age group with items like burgers.



As reported by PTI, the facility has been introduced across 25 railway stations, including New Delhi, Mumbai Central, Howrah, Chennai, Nagpur, Pune, Surat, Lucknow and Moradabad.

We are introducing Janani Sewa to make mothers happy”, said Suresh Prabhu after its launch, as reported by The Financial Express. He added that the initiative was taken after a complaint of a mother regarding the absence of milk at rail premises. “Once a mother had tweeted about milk unavailability in the train and taking note of her complaint on the social networking site, we had ensured milk at that train,” he said.

The minister also said that the Railways have taken the necessary steps to fulfill budget promises, and while many have been implemented, the rest are at various stages of implementation.


The Logical Indian community welcomes the move by Indian Railways and hopes that the mothers who are travelling with their babies find it easier to commute thereafter.
