Shaken from its slumber by the worst train accident in six years, the Railways has promised to step up production of modern Linke Holfmann Bush (LHB) coaches to replace old Integral Coach Factory (ICF) designed coaches and to resist the temptation of announcing new trains on overburdened routes.
The toll could have been much lesser had the Railways completely switched over to the manufacture of LHB coaches -which do not pile up unlike the earlier coaches in case of an accident -as suggested by the Anil Kakodkar panel on railway safety in 2012.

Moreover all the under production old type coupling and spares have to be stopped at once for the passengers safety.
Moreover the production of LHB coaches have to be implemented in all the Railway production units.
