The capacity addition will be a mix of rooftop and ground-mounted projects. So far, only Gujrat and Rajasthan have shown their capacity of holding solar power resources-- where 25 MW of rooftop and 50 MW of ground-mounted capacity is to be commissioned in the first phase of the program. In their second phase, a 60 MW of rooftop and 660 MW of ground-mounted capacity will be installed in nine other states. 
During the third phase, 400 MW of rooftop and 3,800 MW of ground-mounted capacity will be installed in the rest of the country. The ministry is in its full flow of bringing in renewable sources of energy. A couple of months ago, Ministry of Railways issued a tender for setting up 50 MW
of rooftop solar power capacity. 
Another such tender for 100 MW is expected to come.
It was only last year when Indian Railways went public with their plans of issuing green bonds to potentially raise funds to fuel renewable energy expansion, and now, one can see them going full throttle.
