The Indian Railways has rolled out its first-ever air-conditioned three-tier economy class coach.
According to reports, the Railway Ministry claims it is the cheapest and best AC travel in the world.
The new economy class coach has been manufactured by the Rail Coach Factory, Kapurthala in Punjab. It comes with enhanced passenger capacity, fire alarm systems, toilet-entry doors that are friendly for the differently-abled and ergonomic ladders.
The prototype coach will now be tested by the Research Designs & Standards Organisation. 100 such coaches will be manufactured in the ongoing financial year.
