All railway workshops have been instructed to compulsorily install bio-toilets in all existing in-service eligible coaches undergoing mid life rehabilitation and periodical overhaul.

Retro-fitment of bio-toilets in existing in-service coaches is also being done to a limited extent in coaching depots.

Approximately 55 per cent of the total passenger carrying coaches over Indian Railways have been installed with bio-toilets.
