Swachh Bharat Mission – Railway Compartments to have Bio-toilets

Swachh Bharat Mission – Railway Compartments to have Bio-toilets

In a move to strengthen the ‘Swachh Bharat’ Mission, ICF’s General Manager, Ashok K Agarwal said that henceforth railway compartments will be made with bio-toilets.

In the Financial Year 2013-14, ICF had achieved its target of producing 1622 railway compartments. Among the 8 factories in India, it has won the award for the best railway compartment manufacturing factory in the country. The award was given by the Railway Minister, Sadananda Gowda, on October 10. Railway employees and their families are the reason why we won the award. It was their hard work that made this award possible. In the current financial year, until September, we have manufactured 824 railway compartments. Target has been fixed to manufacture 1710 railway compartments by March 2015.

In order to ensure that Swachh Bharat mission continues to be effective, railway compartments will be manufactured with bio-toilets. These toilets convert human excreta into water and dispose of it. In addition to this, in order to avoid fire accidents, railway compartments will be produced, in future, with rust-proof alloys. If, despite these precautions, accidents occur, then there will be emergency exits and swing doors on both sides of the compartments. There are also plans to produce engines with superfast capabilities in future.

Currently, special railway compartments are being produced for the Kolkata Metro Rail trains. We have not been approached by Chennai Metro Rail officials. If they do, we are ready to produce railway compartments for them.

ICF Chief Mechanical Engineer, Pankaj Kumar; Chief Electrical Engineer, Hande Giri and others were present during the meeting.
