N.F. Railway takes steps to improve lighting inside coaches

In an effort to improve lighting in the interior of coaches, N.F. Rly has initiated a drive for replacement of existing incandescent lamps and CFL lights inside coaches by LED lights. By doing this not o­nly will there be a saving of energy consumption, the inside of the coaches will also get brightly illuminated. So far 1890 coaches have been retrofitted with LED lights and entire stock of coaches will be done within September 2019. This initiative is part of the planning of Indian Railways for improvement of the travelling experience of the passengers and is being done in tandem with other initiatives for improving the coaches interior to ensure more comfort.

It is to be mentioned that existing Tube lights have limitation in brightness and there is uneven distribution of light. Besides there are problems of accumulation of dust particles which results in poor lightening. In order to overcome this limitation, energy efficient LED based light has been introduced which are brighter and can be conveniently used in 100 volts D.C.Energy saving of up to 40% is possible by using of LED lights.

N.F. Railway has already replaced conventional lighting in all its stations with LED lights in all its stations. Besides at important stations like Guwahati, Dibrugarh, NCB, NJP, KIR and Rangiya the Lux levels of lights have been improved to airport standard lighting.
