- The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) will classify railway stations under the red, orange and green categories based on the quantity of waste water generated and the disposal of untreated water into the municipal drain systems.
- Railway stations generating waste water equal to or more than 100 Kilo Litres per Day (KLD) would be categorised as Red.
- Railway stations generating waste water greater than 10 KLD but less than 100 KLD would come under the Orange category.
- Railway stations with less than 10 KLD waste water generation would be branded Green.
