The other new features including foot-operated fixtures including taps, lavatory doors, flush valves and door latches.
Outside the toilet is a wash basin with a foot operated tap forearm. Besides, the compartment doors have handles operated with forearms.
The Railways has also installed copper coated handrails and latches as copper degrades the virus which lands on it within a few hours, the booklet said.
The nano structured titanium dioxide coating is another special feature.
The coating will kill viruses, bacteria, mould, and fungal growth and most importantly enhances indoor air quality, the railways said.
The coating which has effective life of 12 months, has been applied on washbasins, lavatory, seats and berths, snack table, glass window, floor, virtually every contact surface.

When Rajdhani was started in 1969, it also had foot operated basins. So old thing coming back.
