Now passengers will not feel pain
The newly designed Split Option will remain, but a separate Slide Seat has been given, which is towards the window. When the passenger has to sleep, he will pull it up, which will cover the gap between the two seats. With this new design, the passenger will not have any problem due to the middle gap and there will be no pain in his back while sleeping during the long journey.
Railways is upgrading train coaches
A few months ago, it was reported that Railways is planning to upgrade non-AC sleepers and general class coaches. In this connection, Indian Railways is redesigning unreserved General Class coaches and 3-tier Non AC Sleeper Class coaches into AC coaches. With this step of the railway, passengers will get the opportunity to travel in AC trains cheaply.
Economical AC-3 Class Preparation
According to a senior official, the upgraded coach, which will be like an affordable AC 3-tier class, will be called AC-3 tier tourist class. In the first phase, 230 coaches will be prepared. It will cost around 28 million to 3 million to build each coach. Which is about 10 percent more than the cost of making an AC-3 class coach. In the initial design, it is planned to have 105 seats in each coach.
