Delhi is to see a new green train on its tracks with an environmentally-friendly toilet.

Travellers in Delhi can now be kinder to the environment when they use public transport as an environmentally-friendly toilet is being added to a train.

A 24-coach green train is set to be used in the city which will have bacteria-eating toilets and will travel between Varanasi and Mumbai.

The new technology has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation and will convert waste into gas and water, which will help to improve hygiene in the areas around railway lines and stop the tracks from becoming damaged.

This system could also be more effective as it will work well with the many long-distance railway journeys that travel across India each day.

Catching the train is one of the most popular ways for both travellers and locals to get around the vast country, with more than 63,000 km of track crossing the nation and 6,800 stations open in its cities and towns.
