Railways to introduce new Economy coaches at fares lower than 3AC
Rail travellers will soon have the option to travel in a new class of ‘Economy AC coaches’ with ticket prices lesser than normal 3AC ticket rates.
The planned fully air-conditioned train will have automatic doors and three-tier Economy AC coaches as well as AC-3, AC-2 and AC-1 classes.
What is interesting about the Economy AC class is that it will have temperature around 24-25 degrees to make the travellers comfortable and prevent them from using blankets or feeling the outside heat.
Right now, Mail and Express trains have Sleeper, Third AC, Second AC and First AC classes while Rajdhani, Shatabdi and newly introduced Humsafar and Tejas trains are fully air-conditioned.
