Indian Railways continuously endeavour to make travelling more convenient for passengers. Actions taken in this direction in the recent past are:
o Cushioned seats/berths, fluorescent lights, fans and toilet & washbasins facilities etc. in mainline coaches.
o Mirrors, snack tables, magazine bags, water bottle holders, coach hooks, small luggage racks, luggage securing arrangements, mobile/laptop charging sockets etc. in reserved coaches.
o Curtains for aisles/windows, berth reading lights, dustbins etc. in AC coaches. Attachment of coaches including general class coaches in trains is an ongoing process on Indian Railways and is done keeping in view the traffic pattern of different class of passengers, operational feasibility, commercial viability and availability of resources. Besides, additional general class coaches are also attached in various trains on regular basis to clear rush of general class passengers.
This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Bharatsinh Solanki in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha today.
