Indian Railways passengers note! This new rail project means lakhs of additional seats in trains; saves Rs 1,400 crore

Indian Railways launches game-changer project to save over Rs 1,400 crore a year! Piyush Goyal-led Indian Railways has introduced a new game-changing move for LHB coaches, 20 years after they were first introduced on the network.

The national transporter, in an eco-friendly move, is now making use of the Head-On-Generation (HOG) system, instead of the End on Generation (EOG) system. The HOG system makes use of overhead electric supply to supply power to the coaches. This eliminates the need for two power cars to be attached to LHB rakes on the network, hence helping save crores of rupees in diesel consumption. Additionally, the resulting reduction in fumes and carbon dioxide emissions makes it an eco-friendly move.

Under the new system, instead of two power cars which created immense noise, one silent generator car will be available that can be used in case of an emergency. One LHB Second Luggage, Guard & Divyaang Compartment will be attached in place of the second power car. Read More
