India inaugurated the first "Green Train Corridor", how does it affect the Indian people?

India`s first Green Train Corridor was inaugurated in Manamadurai– Rameswaram (मानामदुरै-रामेश्वरम) stretch of Southern Railway. The length of this Green corridor is 114 km long.  The Railway Minister Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu dedicated this corridor the section as part of Indian Railway’s commitment to clean environment.
The nation's first Green Rail Corridor ... which ensures zero toilet discharge on rail tracks, was today inaugurated by Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu.


To ensure proper working of the bio-toilets, Southern Railway had established a bio-lab at the coaching depot, which handled the coaches, in September last year for testing the discharge. Indian Railway had developed the environment-friendly ‘IR-DRDO Bio-toilets’, in association with DRDO.

MAIN PROBLEMS WITH CURRENT TOILETS
  • Maintenance: The rail crew isn't solely responsible for ensuring sanitation. It depends on the public too. That's why most bathrooms on trains don't smell like cherry blossoms in a fresh meadow.
  • Odour: Imagine holding a flower dipped in spoiled stew. Now suppose you are in a room with dimensions 4 X 5ft. With 100 such flowers. Do you believe it right? That's about the same odour of an average train bathroom.
  • High Water Use: Water use depends on the number of people who use the train. 1.1% of the country's population travel on a train daily! So, you can imagine the water consumption required.
