Indian Railways’ another eco-friendly achievement! The New OPD Block of Railway Hospital in Vijayawada has been recently awarded a Platinum rating by the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) under the category of ‘New Service Building’. According to the South Central Railway zone, this new OPD Block is the Vijayawada Division’s first such service building to be bestowed with Platinum Rating by CII – IGBC.

This rating system’s objective is to facilitate the adoption of green concepts, thereby reducing adverse environmental impacts and enhancing the overall experience of the public. The New Delhi railway station (NDLS) of Indian Railways, a few months ago, was re-certified by IGBC with the Platinum Green Station rating.

Some of the salient features of NDLS include passenger-friendly facilities, hygiene, sanitation and health initiatives, as well as water and energy-efficient measures. This system is a first-of-its-kind holistic rating, which aims to address environmental sustainability in stations across the country. Apart from NDLS, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT) railway station was awarded with Gold certification under CII’s IGBC ratings. The CSMT railway station in Mumbai became the station in Maharashtra to be awarded Gold certification under CII’s IGBC ratings.
