VISAKHAPATNAM: The eco-friendly bio-toilets, jointly developed by the Railways and DRDO, have been introduced on Visakhapatnam-Shiridi-Visakhapatnam and Visakhapatnam-Chennai-Visakhapatnam weekly express trains.

The bio-toilets were fitted on the trains on Thursday and the trains titled Green Trains.
