In an attempt to boost Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious “Swachh Bharat Mission”, Piyush Goyal-led Indian Railways is extensively installing bio-toilets on its coaches so that no human waste is discharged from train coaches on the tracks. According to Railway Ministry, in year 2016-2017, 6 Green corridors were made functional in order to demonstrate the advantage of fitment of bio-toilets. Moreover, the national transporter has commissioned 22 sections as Green corridors, which will be free from human waste discharge from trains. According to Railway Ministry, the decision to set up bio-toilets in the entire fleet of coaches across Indian Railways by the year 2021-22 has been advanced to 2019 in the Union Budget 2017-18. Therefore, once the work of fitting bio-toilets in all train coaches is completed, the entire network of Indian Railways will automatically become human waste discharge free from coaches.
