Massage services on offer on trains in India

MUMBAI, 10 June 2019:

Indian Railways will soon provide massage services in 39 trains departing from Indore.

Only male masseurs with special identity cards will be allowed to offer their services during day travels, DRM Ratlam division R.N. Sunkar reportedly said: “Based on the success of the project, we will introduce masseuses.”

But the head and foot massage service will not be available in night trains from 10pm to 6am.

This massage service, now offered only on luxury train services like the Maharaja Express, is expected to generate additional ancillary income for the railway.
