IR has further planned to provide solar plants of another 10 MW capacity at 200 Railway stations including Katra Railway station, 26 buildings and 2000 LC gates.
To expand its footprint in the solar energy space, Indian Railway is in the process of formulating a‘Solar Policy’ of procuring 1000 MW Solar Power under viability gap funding support and Central Financial Assistance schemes of Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) over next 5 years.
