Gaya Municipality Conservancy Tramway

The Gaya Municipality, which was constituted in 1865, constructed a steam tramway to enable the removal of night soil from parts of the city.

The “Bengal District Gazetteer: Gaya” of 1906 reported:-
’In three wards the night soil is removed to a trenching ground near the Ramsila Hill in iron trucks by a steam-tramway, which was procured from England at a cost of Rs.43,350, and which costs over Rs.12,000 a year to maintain.’ [1]


No further information has been found concerning this tramway
