Rail Green Points for Freight Customers
Indian Railways has laid down Policy guidelines recently to assign carbon saving point, termed as Rail Green Points, to freight customer.
It will be applicable only to the freight customers who are registered on e-Registration of Demand(e-RD) portal of Freight Operations Information System(FOIS).
Every customer who places demand online (on e-demand module) for freight services will be given the details of the expected saving of carbon emission called Rail Green Points.
The green points will be credited to customer’s account on Freight Business Development portal.
Downloadable certificate displaying Rail Green Points will also be provided.
The Rail Green Points can’t be claimed for any benefit from Railways.
Rail Green Points will be reckoned on financial year basis.
Corporate customers can mention the Green Points on their website, and in their Annual Reports.
The module for Rail Green Point will be developed by Centre for Railway Information Systems/Freight Operations Information System (CRIS/FOIS).
The scheme is likely to be launched in April 2022.
