Indian Railways Green Toilets

The Indian Railways is finalising a proposal to manufacture new design eco-friendly toilets in Nagpur in a step towards its commitment for cleaner environment and to prevent damage to rail tracks. "Efforts are on for installation of green toilets in trains and field trials are on for the purpose. These newly designed eco-friendly lavatories are likely to be manufactured in Nagpur," a senior railway ministry official said.
  The proposal for manufacturing green toilets in Nagpur is likely to find a mention in the railway budget on February 25. However, local railway officials say they have no communication about it. Central Railway divisional railway manager (DRM) D K Sharma said, "It's true that railways is carrying out field trials for various types of green toilets and some work is going on in this direction, but I don't have exact knowledge about it."
