Owing to the rail accidents in UttarPradesh and some other derailing events the Railway ministry ordered to stop the production of existing coaches. Now it is decided to manufacture coaches under German LHB (Link Hoffman Busch) technology with sophisticated facilities. Under the “Make in India” concept these are exclusively manufactured inÂ India by Integrated Coach Factory(ICF).
These coaches will be integrated with engines so that the speed of the trains can be altered easily according to the situation. They can be operated at a maximum speed of 160 km/h.These coaches seats embedded with LCD display t.v’s,headphones,mobile charging and GPS technology. Over 350 crores has been sanctioned to the manufacture of these coaches for the purchase of logistics within India as well as from abroad.
