Indian railways to launch 3rd AC Economy at less price.

New Delhi: Train passengers will soon have the option of travelling in a new class of “Economy AC coaches” at fares less than AC 3-tier.

The government has proposed a new fully AC train which will have 3 Tier Economy AC Coaches besides AC 1, AC 2 and AC 3 Tier compartments, as part of a transformation exercise. An added feature would be automatic doors. However, the passengers will not require blankets in the Economy AC coaches like other AC coaches as the temperature will be around 24-25 degrees.

Currently Mail and Express trains have Sleeper, 3 AC, 2 AC and 1 AC classes while Rajdhani, Shatabdi and recently introduced Humsafar and Tejas trains are fully air- conditioned.
