E-Vehicle Charging Facility: Indian Railways has taken another major step towards sustainable mass transportation, ensuring green environment and clean energy. The Hyderabad railway station has been provided with an e-vehicle charging facility. According to a statement issued by South Central Railways, as part of the Modi government’s initiative to reduce carbon emissions in all major cities by the year 2030 and as a major boost toward e-mobility, recently, the Secunderabad Division has awarded a contract for setting up e-vehicle charging stations at 32 major railway stations across the zonal railway. The South Central Railway has claimed that the zone has always been at the forefront in undertaking environment-friendly initiatives.

According to the national transporter, e-mobility is an important step towards environmental stability as it reduces carbon emission as well as improves the quality of life apart from facilitating low maintenance requirements.
