In my opinion, Chair car composition is not an ideal one for UDAY as there was scope for sleeper class accomodation.. Russia is a beautiful example.. Check dis video link -
click here
No doubt IR is making efforts towards better capacity augmentation but even presently not all chair car DDs are that successful.. am sure sleeper double decker would have been a better and desirable option. Maybe cost economics would have made IR skeptical

Thanks for sharing the video!!
The Russian implementation is quite comfortable, but it only has a capacity of 64 passengers. A sleeper accommodation in DD coaches with higher capacity than a 3A coach is quite a challenge ( and necessary for DD to be chosed over 3rd A/C).
RDSO had conducted some studies on enhancing the carrying capacity on IR's coaches. They evaluated several options based on the feedback people had given on the side middle berths introduced a few
years ago. The primary problem people had with them was claustrophobia. For the same reason, RDSO felt that adding sleeper accommodation to DD coaches would result in the same response from people.
They concluded that increasing capacity would require a change in the permitted dimensions of the coaches, which would need some modifications throughout the routes they run on. ( Not major modifications though). Many zones have had problems with changing the coach dimensions as the sections of track capable of handling the modified coaches are fragmented and most of the route has to be upgraded.
They evaluated options to increase the capacity in 3 tier coaches to accommodate 4+4+3 passengers per coupe, by modifying the coaches to allow an additional 2 feet headroom inside. These discussions were published last year and they still seem to be in a R&D phase. For now, it seems very likely that the Uday coaches will end up with a chair car configuration only.

Sleeper class double decker has very low capacity....Hence for high capacity coaches chair car is necessary ..

Russian DD SL coach ki capacity isliye kum hai kyunki usme Side lower or side upper berth nahi hai. 16 coupes/compartments hai upper or lower deck mila ker or per coupe 4 seats hai. Agar AC 2nd layout ko implement kiya jaye or side me bhi berths de to per coach 32 berths badh jayenge or per coach capacity 96 ho jayegi. Ye realistic hai kyunki coach ka width to fixed hai. 96 Sleeper berths 120 Chair car seats se definitely better hai.

Today (15:20)   Three more Humsafar trains for Karnataka

Last Updated: 15th January 2017 03:37 AM |
BENGALURU: Indian Railways is all set to introduce three more Humsafar trains for Karnataka shortly. These are GPS based, AC 3-tiered trains with special facilities for disabled.
Speaking to Express, S
S Soin, Additional General Manager (AGM), South Western Railway, Hubballi, said, “Railways will be introducing three more weekly Humsafar trains before March, two of which will originate within Bangalore Division.
The operation of trains though will fall under the jurisdiction of different railway zones and not the South Western Railway. The Humsafar trains offer additional comfort for passenger.”
The Kamakhya-Bengaluru Cantonment Weekly Humsafar Express was launched on December 25 from Kamakhya (Assam) and commenced regular operations from Bangalore Cantonment from December 30.
The new Humsafar trains will be introduced to Bhuvaneshwar from Krishnarajapuram, to Howrah from Yesvantpur and to Tiruchirapalli from Sriganganagar (Rajasthan), said Soin. The Hamsafar category of trains were announced by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on August 17 last year.
Elaborating on its features, divisional railway manager, Bengaluru Division, Sanjiv Agarwal, said, “The trains will have an LED display board and coaches will have sensors to detect smoke and fire. The coaches are disabled-friendly with Braille display.” Bio-toilets, vending machines that can give tea, coffee and soup and newly designed dustbins are other features, he said.
In addition to that, Uday Express (double-decker train) from KSR station to Coimbatore will also be launched. The train will leave Coimbatore at 5.45am and reach KSR station at 12.35 pm. In the return direction, it will leave KSR at 2.15 pm and reach Coimbatore at 9 pm. It will run on all days except Monday. This will only be the second double decker from Bengaluru. One such train runs to Chennai daily.
