Environmentally friendly means of travel are quickly becoming all the more important as the technology progresses and governments realize its importance.

Not only do such measures reduce the negative impact on the environment due to existing methods, they also lead to reduce costs over the long run.

In a significant move towards eco-friendly mass transport, the railway minister Suresh Prabhu flagged off the very first Indian dual fuel train. The term ‘dual fuel’ signifies that the train can utilize both Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as well as diesel for locomotion. The train runs between the Rewari-Rohtak section of northern zone. It has a capacity of 770 passengers.

There are two power cars and six car coaches which have been manufactured by Integral Coach Factory at Chennai with the CNG conversion kits supplied by Cummins. More info
