BILASPUR: South East Central Railway (SECR) plans to introduce and maintain more bio-toilets in trains, keeping in view railway ministry's efforts to provide such toilets in all trains by 2020.
"At present, there are bio-toilets in 14 coaches, including in 12 air-conditioned coaches and two sleeper coaches, being maintained at Bilaspur coaching depot. The division maintains 525 coaches of seven long distance and 11 short distance trains," senior divisional mechanical engineer Lalit Dhurandar told TOI.
"Bio toilet is really a self-contained device that breaks down as well as dehydrates human waste with the help of an anaerobic bacterium inside a tank filled with 125 litres of water, which will convert it into harmless and odourless gas and water," he said. "For long, waste was released directly on the tracks but now railways have found a solution to the messy problem with the help of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and bio-toilets is changing the scenario," he added.
A high level safety committee headed by Dr Anil Kakodkar had noted in its report last year how the toilet droppings are one among the primary cause for the rail corrosion resulting in rail failure. The panel had also noted how railway men have refused to maintain tracks on account of dire unhygienic conditions.
Pointing out that the new age toilets were manufactured at Kapurthala coach factory and fitted in long distance trains, the ministry has already issued a circular to ensure green makeover in all the trains in order to improve hygienic conditions.
