New Delhi: Indian Railways will have 100% bio-toilets by next year that will make tracks safe and eliminate defecation on the rail lines, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said. Bio-toilets were one of the most successful stories of the Railways as 60% of the coaches has already been fitted with it so far, Goyal said.

More information:

  • “The toilets on the entire rail network, whether passenger trains, express, Duronto, Rajdhani or unreserved ones, will be replaced with bio-toilets. We have already completed almost 60 per cent of the coaches.” he said.
  • The Minister said,”The work on the balance is going on expeditiously and by next year, it will be 100 per cent bio-toilets in the railways.”
  • This will completely eliminate defecation on the tracks, which is not only unhygienic but affects rail safety because the uric acid damages them, causing accidents, he said.
  • Goyal told the Rajya Sabha,”The Railways proposed to complete the work of installation of bio-toilets in balance coaches in 2019. An outlay of Rs 12.20 billion has been provided for completion of this work.”
  • Work was on to retrofit additional vacuum- assisted flushing units in these toilets, which have been developed with the help of the DRDO under the ‘Make In India’ drive instead of importing them, he said.
