In a novel way to tackle pigeons and their droppings inside the CSMT heritage building, Central Railway (CR) authorities have placed nets on the ceiling — towards the entrance of the General Manager’s office — in order to prevent pigeons from sitting on the small parapet.

The birds, especially pigeons, tend to sit on the beam of the ceiling that has little crevices. Right below are wide corridors with Victorian-styled arches made of limestone on one side and teak wood doors leading into the offices of railwaymen on the other.

“In order to prevent birds from sitting on these beams, we have placed these nets so that they do not enter in the first place. Cleaning their droppings is an issue,” said a CR official. This has been done on the second floor where the General Manager’s – top boss of CR – spacious office exists. The offices on this floor would not be shifted unlike those on the ground and first floors.

Sources said that by the end of this month, the process of shifting office space on the ground and first floors shall begin in which nearly 400 rail employees work. Since the Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal asked for setting up a World Transport museum at CSMT, the offices of Central Railway will move to other buildings.
