Sleeper Coach to be removed from Indian Railways


Railways are considering to install only AC coaches on all trains except for some slow passenger and local trains.

According to reports, a new blueprint is being prepared under which AC berths of 83 berths will be replaced in place of existing sleeper coaches of 72 berths in long distance trains. These will mostly include mail and express trains.

According to an Economic Times report, their fares after the new coaches will be lower than the current AC fares but higher than the existing sleeper class tickets.
