Indian Railways Introduces Automatic Lighting System at Jabalpur Station

Taking yet again an innovative step towards energy conservation, Indian Railways has installed Automatic Lighting System at Jabalpur Railway Station. The lighting system enables light to turn on and off automatically as a train turns in and out of platform.

This interesting arrangement has been made on platform number 1 of Jabalpur railway station, which falls under the Bhopal Railway Division of West Central Railways. According to details shared by the West Central Railway zone, when the train arrives, all the lights (100 per cent lights) will be turned on automatically and all the lights will remain on during the train’s halt at the station platform. When the train crosses the platform, 70 per cent of the lights will be switched off automatically and only 30 per cent of the lights will remain on.

According to the West Central Railway zone, apart from the Jabalpur railway station, this lighting facility has also been made available at platform number 1 and 2 of Narsinghpur railway station. In the coming days, the national transporter is likely to introduce the same lighting facility in other major railway stations of the West Central Railway zone as well.
