Colas Banned at 300 Stations by the Western Central Railways of India

The Western Central Railways has banned the sales of all cola products, produced by Coke and Pepsi companies at 300 railway stations falling under its jurisdiction. The decision was taken after the health certification on these cold drinks was found to have expired. The health department has chosen to conduct a test on the content of colas as they suspect that these drinks contain metals like cadmium and chromium.

In the Lok Sabha, the Union Minister of the State (Health), Faghan Singh Kulaste lobbied to ban their sale at all stations until the drinks clear the tests. Sachin Shukla, the Assistant General Manager, Western Central Railway said, “The cold drinks being sold at railway stations do not have the required certification from the health department. Till the time they get the certificate, the sale of these cold drinks has been banned.”

Shukla also added, “The company’s old permission has expired, and till the time they get a new agreement, the sale of cold drinks has been banned. Also, the health department is conducting a test on the contents of these drinks, and till the time this test report is out new permission to sell these cold drinks will not be given.”
