Railway launches green rail corridors

    Railway Green Rail Corridors
    The Indian Railways has recently inaugurate 'First Green Train Corridor named as Rameswaram-Manamadurai' commanding a length of 114 km in Tamil Nadu in the downstream south which will become free from human waste discharge, an initiative part of the flagship Swachh Bharat programme, as the passenger trains consisting of 286 coaches moving over this section have been provided with bio-toilets.

    After Rameswarm-Manamadurai, Okha-Kanalas Junction (141 km), Porbandar-Wansjaliya (34 km), and Jammu-Katra (78 km) routes would also be taken up for making them free from human waste discharge from trains. For this, around 35 trains consisting of nearly 1,110 coaches would be further provided with bio toilets for which the work is underway. These sections and stations were chosen because the number of trains originating and terminating at these stations and sections are few, thus making its implementation easier and faster to make them human-discharge free and the rail ministry has taken up a task of providing human discharge-free bio toilets in all its coaches and the task is expected to be completed by September 2019.
