Kochi: On the occasion of the World Toilet Day on November 19, Central Railways for the first time introduced e-toilets, built by Eram Scientific Solutions Private Limited under the Eram Group, in railway coaches. This advanced sanitation facility is being implemented as a pilot project in the AC coach of Lokmanya Tilak Terminus-Elite Coimbatore Express (Train no. 11013), and it is being monitored for performance as well as customer feedback before expanding this project to cover more trains. As it is a newly-introduced concept, feedbacks from the users are important for upgrading the facility according to the convenience of the commuters.

E-toilets are automated, electronically-integrated toilets which are simple to operate. They are fitted with pressurised flushing mechanism and several additional functions/system integrations and sensors to ensure hygienic toilet operations. While e-toilets have now been in use in static locations for quite some time, the concept has been tried for the first time in the mobile environment of a railway coach.

Eram Scientific has been in the forefront for developing and commercialising unique sanitation technologies like e-toilets. Having installed over 3000-plus e-toilets across India, Kuwait, Nepal and MENA Region, Eram’s pioneering mission of providing end-to-end sanitation solutions using IoT-enabled technology has required them to globally connect and partner with several national and international universities and research organisations. Eram partners with over 15 Smart Cities in India for providing sustainable sanitation infrastructure. Eram Scientific has won over 45-plus national and international awards, including the prestigious Safaigiri Toilet Titan Award from the Prime Minister of India and India’s first-ever Swachhathon Award instituted by the Union Ministry of Drinking Water and Sanitation.

According to Dr. Siddeek Ahmed, Chairman and Managing Director of Eram Group, Eram Scientific has already extended its technical expertise and skills for bringing in globally-acknowledged sustainable sanitation solutions. We look forward to change the current sanitation scenario and improve the lives of the people across the world through our high-end sanitation technologies. The challenging concept of integrating e-toilet technology into the passenger train is a novel one. Eram Scientific with its proven track record in the field and technical expertise has successfully achieved it.
