South Central Railway (SCR) has installed 'atmospheric water generator' called 'Meghdoot' at Secunderabad Railway Station. This is the first such initiative taken by the Indian Railways.
'Meghdoot' is developed by Maithri Aquatech and it produces around 1,000 litres of water per day. 'Meghdoot' harvests water directly from air through a series of steps.
It costs Rs 8 per litre with a bottle and Rs 5 per litre if passengers carry their own bottle. 'Meghdoot' is installed under SCR’s green initiatives and water conservation measures. The system fulfils the safety norms of safe and healthy drinking water.
