In an effort to reduce its carbon footprint to zero, Indian Railways has awarded a contract to Hyderabad-based Medha Servo Drives for the retrofitting of one Diesel Electric Multiple Unit (DEMU) rake on the Sonipat-Jind line.

The contract to develop hydrogen fuel cell-based technology that can be utilized to modify current diesel-powered trains has been awarded to Medha at an anticipated cost of approximately Rs 70 crore.

The Railways assert that their Rs 70 crore investment in the hydrogen fuel cell project will be returned in less than two years
