Indian Railways Installs Meghdoot At Secunderabad Railway Station
South Central Railway has installed this atmospheric water generator kiosk at the railway station of Secunderabad, and it is called Meghdoot. This project is under the Make in India initiative and is designed by Maithri Aquatech. It produces about 1000 litres of water every day.
Passengers of the Indian Railways will have to pay for this water, but the prices are quite low. One litre bottle of water will cost Rs. 8, and if you have your own bottle, one litre of water costs Rs. 5 only! The price for a glass of 300 ml will be Rs. 3, and this includes the container as well. If you bring a glass with you, it will cost you Rs. 2. A 500 ml glass is priced at Rs. 5 with the container and Rs. 3 if you get your own container with you.

Installed at Secunderabad Railway Station in Telangana, the ??? ?? ???? complies with World Health Organisation standards.”

How Does Meghdoot Create Water From Air?
Here’s how this new system, Meghdoot, works:
- This system basically harvests water from the air, filters it and remineralises it for drinking.
- Firstly, there is a filter through which air is sucked in.
- Moisture laden air passes over the condenser surfaces.
- Next, water is collected in the tank.
This water that is created by Meghdoot, fits in with all the standards dictated by the WHO (World Health Organisation).
