In an attempt to promote fitness, a new fitness machine has been installed at the Anand Vihar Railway Station in Delhi. By doing sit-ups in the machine, one can get free entry to the station platform. For passengers with a fitness goal, this initiative comes as a nudge to encourage their goals. Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal on Friday took to Twitter and shared a video, where a commuter can be seen doing sit-ups for a few minutes in front of a machine installed at the Delhi station.


Video Get FREE Platform Tickets After A Little Exercise


Sharing the video, Goyal wrote, "Fitness along with saving: A unique experiment has been done at Delhi's Anand Vihar railway station to encourage fitness. Now platform tickets can be taken free of charge after exercising in front of the machine installed here." In his earlier tweet, Piyush Goyal had also mentioned the effective usage of the Segway at Goa's Madgaon railway station, which warns passengers about safety there. Sharing the video, Piyush Goyal had mentioned that Segway allows the Segway Security Forces to perform their work more efficiently with the help of technology.

It is to be noted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched a nation-wide Fit India Movement at Indira Gandhi Stadium Complex in New Delhi, in order to encourage people to indulge in physical activity and sports in their everyday lives to lead a healthy life. He has always been vocal about the practice of Yoga and has often engaged in public fitness activities.
