PR No. 817 Railway Freight Customers to get Rail Green Points Applicable to freight customers registered on e-RD portal of FOIS Scheme likely to be launched in April 2022


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-RD portal of FOIS.

Every customer who places demand o­nline (on e-demand module) for freight services may be prompted by a ‘Pop up’ thanking him for choosing to transport by Indian Railways giving details of the expected saving of carbon emission called Rail Green Points. o­nce RR is generated, the saving of carbon emission will be credited to customer’s account in the form of Rail Green Points and the cumulative points will also be shown in his account o­n Freight Business Development portal. Downloadable certificate displaying Rail Green Point may be provided in the system.

The Rail Green Points can’t be claimed for any benefit from Railways. Rail Green Points will be reckoned o­n financial year basis. The ‘Feel Good Factor’ that customers would get from this information will motivate them to transport more by train. Moreover, the corporate customers may like to mention it o­n their website, in their Annual Reports.

The module for Rail Green Point will be developed by CRIS/FOIS. CRIS will also evolve some kind of Green Star Rating type concept for customers for identification based o­n their Rail Green Points. Leadership board may also be thought of for Rail Green Points. The scheme is likely to be launched in April 2022.
