Indian Railways to offer additional 4 lakh berths; thanks to green technology

Indian railways will offer an additional 4 lakh berths, all thanks to a new technology that allows power generation cars to be replaced with sleeper coaches. Railways now plan to introduce a new technology 'HOG' that is already used worldwide. Most trains have power cars housing diesel generators now. About 5000 coaches of railways will be modified to run on new technology that will save Rs 6000 crore in fuel bills annually.
