Railways plan green toilets for clean trains, stations

For the first time in Indian Railways, a set of such toilets has been installed on a trial basis in one of the AC-I coaches of Dibrugarh Rajdhani.

NEW DELHI: Stinking toilets in trains may soon become a thing of the past. Indian Railways is gearing up to replace all conventional toilets in the trains with "bio-vacuum toilets". Officials said these environment-friendly toilets consume less water and also help in preventing corrosion of rail tracks.

For the first time in Indian Railways, a set of such toilets has been installed on a trial basis in one of the AC-I coaches of Dibrugarh Rajdhani at an estimated cost of about Rs 3 lakh. Officials said after completion of successful trials, around 80 such toilets will be installed in a Shatabdi Express for which the department may float global tenders inviting multinational companies from USA, Germany and Spain.

According to the Delhi division officials, the vacuum toilets installed in the trains in foreign countries have a retention tank placed under the coach. It holds all human waste that is flushed out of the toilet. The toilet then needs to be evacuated at terminal stations, making involvement of municipal corporations necessary in the process.

Prabhu plans regulatory body to bring railways back on track

Railways minister Suresh Prabhu is planning to set up an independent tariff and safety regulatory authority as he aims to end populism in the cash-strapped public transporter by delinking the fare and freight structure from political vagaries.

The regulator is part of the government’s reform agenda and will provide leg room to the railways minister to hike passenger fares on the basis of market conditions without fear of a political storm. A decision is expected by the end of the year.
