Jet Airways na to Railways ki tarah late hoti hai na AIR India ki tarah VIP culture mein belief karti hai. Flight to miss honi hi thi.

भोजीपुरा रूट पर बड़ी रेल लाइन की गाड़ी चलने का इंतजार किया जा रहा है। आम जनता लालायित है मगर रेल मंत्रालय की ओर से हरी झंडी नहीं मिल पा रही है। लोगों में मायूसी पनप रही है। वहीं स्टेशन पर निर्माण कार्य की रफ्तार सुस्त चल रही है।
पूर्वोत्तर रेलवे के इज्जतनगर मंडल की पीलीभीत-भोजीपुरा रेल रूट बनकर तैयार हो चुका है, जिसे काफी समय हो चुका है। रेलगाड़ी का स्पीड ट्रायल भी हो चुका है। रेल मंत्रालय की ओर से रेलगाड़ी चलने की तिथि नहीं मिल रही है, इसको लेकर यात्रियों व दैनिक यात्रियों में पशोपेश की स्थिति बरकरार है। हर रोज यात्री रेलगाड़ी संचालन की तिथि आने का इंतजार कर रहे हैं, लेकिन रोजाना निराशा ही हाथ लगती है।

The project of installation of bio-toilets in passenger coaches has not yet been completed. The project is still in progress. More than 49,000 bio-toilets have been installed by Indian Railways in passenger coaches till 31.10.2016.
The additional cost of providing bio-toilets in one coach (4 bio-toilets) is ₹4.0 lakh approximately and for the in-service coaches, which require replacement of structural members for fitment of bio-toilets, the additional cost is approximately ₹ 16.0 lakh per coach.
At present, there are more than 900 trains in which bio-toilets have been introduced either in all coaches

or in some coaches of the trains. More and more trains are being progressively augmented with coaches fitted with bio-toilets.
Anaerobic digestion process is applied for the digestion of human excreta in the bio-toilets that are being fitted in passenger coaches of Indian Railways. No human excreta is thrown out on the railway track from a bio-toilet fitted in trains. In these bio-toilets, which are fitted below the coach floor underneath the lavatories, the human waste is collected from toilet and is acted upon by a colony of anaerobic bacteria that convert human waste mainly into water and bio-gases (mainly Methane CH4 & Carbon Dioxide CO2). The gases escape into the atmosphere and wastewater is discharged after disinfection onto the track. Human excreta thus do not fall on the railway tracks.
This Press Release is based on the information given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 2 December 2016 (Friday).
