Using Indian Railways train toilets can be a pain – it’s quite difficult to bear the stink? And sometimes, the toilets are choked! For choking problem, which sometimes also causes stink, Indian Railways has found a solution.
In a bid to prevent choking of newly installed bio-toilets in train coaches, Piyush Goyal-led Indian Railways is planning to place dustbins in all lavatories by the end of this year, according to sources quoted in a PTI report. The decision was taken by the national transporter after items such as plastic bags, sanitary napkins, plastic bottles etc.
were found stuck in the newly installed bio-toilets in train coaches. This not only results in chocking of bio-toilets but also stinking in train coaches. According to the sources, such dustbins are already in the process of being installed in the bio-toilets of as many as 40,283 train coaches, while the installations have been already completed in 30,000 train coaches.
In the newly installed bio-toilets that are being fitted in passenger coaches of Indian Railways, anaerobic digestion is applied for processing human excreta. Thus, no human excreta would be thrown on railway tracks from these type of toilets. Read More
