Storage / Handling
Keeping in view the importance of developing cheaper and cleaner forms of energy, the Ministry of Railways set up a centralized organization to deal with all related aspects. Bio-diesel forms one of the key thrust areas in future energy planning in the Railways and they had taken up Jatropha plantation in a major way and had already planted more than 20 million (2 crore) saplings all over the country. Since the efforts thus far have been disjointed, Railways would like to carry out further activities in a planned, systematic and coordinated manner. Jatropha can be planted along entire track length across Indian Railways, both sides of which can be profitably used for cropping. Railways would like to involve some experts in these projects and also identify organizations / NGOs / farmer communities / villages who could carry out various activities.

Both large and small plants will have problems for at least next few years, for procurement raw material.
