Indian railways for the first time equipped a diesel locomotive with vacuum toilet on Thursday.

This comes as a huge relief for the loco pilots who at present use the toilet facility either in the guard cabin or the coach.

"It was a budget proposal to provide toilet facility for loco pilots which was implemented today. Similarly other proposals will also be executed in time," Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said today after flagging off the first locomotive with vacuum toilet.

The air-conditioned vacuum toilet with bio-digester in the diesel locomotive costed around INR 17.5 lakh.

Railway Minister added that "We are concerned about the well being of our employees and we want to give all required facilities to our 13 lakh employees. Unless all of us are involved in getting the work done, the project execution will not be successful.”

According to reports Railways will provide similar toilet facility in five more diesel locomotives.
