Indian Railways, which produces its own packaged drinking water to serve its passengers, dispatched some 100,000 bottles of ‘Rail Neer’ to quake-hit Nepal on Saturday night through a special Indian Air Force aircraft that also carried other relief operations.

"Arrangements being made for further dispatch of 100,000 bottles per day to supplement the rescue efforts of the Government of India," Railways Minister Suresh Prabhu said.

Rail Neer is produced by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd.
