The railways will increase 3AC coaches in long distance trains to cater to the growing demand for air-conditioned coaches.
Railway data shows that between April 1, 2016 and March 10, 2017, 3AC coaches carried 17 per cent of all passengers in long-distance trains which accounted for 32.60 per cent of all the earnings from passenger fares.
The data shows increasing demand for 3AC class with passenger share rising from 16.69 per cent last year to 17.15 per cent, and passenenger share rising from 16.69 per cent last year to 17.15 per
cent, and passenger earnings increasing from 32.60 per cent last year to 33.65 per cent between April 1, 2016 and March 10, 2017.
Sleeper class carried 59.78 per cent passengers and contributed about 44.78 per cent of passenger earnings. Last year the share of sleeper coaches was over 60 per cent of passengers and 45.94 per cent of earnings.
The predominance of sleeper passengers is showing a downward trend as more and more passengers are opting for 3AC class, said a senior Railway Ministry official.
The official said a decision has been taken to augment 3AC coaches gradually in some long distance trains.

Lol so people travel in 3 AC just to enjoy a difference of 3-4 degrees? If every thing is regulated and controlled and subsidized in the country, it will be in tatters in a few decades. Those who can afford 3 AC will pay and travel. Those who can afford 2AC will travel in that class, those who cant travel in these will travel in sleeper and those who cant travel in sleeper will squeeze himself in general.
According to your logic, I will travel in 3AC but I want cheap tariffs there also. Suggest you to read some basic economics sir.

The crowd was so high in this train that even Ac class was looking like general class. It was heavily crowded. Their was not a inch to move your finger in GS class and in sleeper class in 1 seat 10people were sitting. The whole train was looking as general class train.

Mostly migrant east and north east labourers going to and fro from their work places in south. Also this train is heavily patronized by the military.

Is Pune a very small station which cannot even arrange a WAG-7 ?
There are 80+ trains originating from Pune+ Significant amount of freight traffic. So will Pune be short of Locos and LP's ?

The way this system is introduced is very unfortunate. They should modify or streamline the entire process.

I'm generally politically neutral but truly speaking, Piyush Goyal, the country's power and energy minister is the best man in the cabinet right now. Low profile but has lots to show for his ministry. There could be others including our Prabhu but they come in close at the 2 nd spot.

Union Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani said here on Sunday that the Congress party had lost its humanitarian face.
Addressing an election campaign meeting at Sulthan Bathery, Ms. Irani said senior Congress leaders had not visited the family of the 29-year-old law student who was brutally raped and murdered at Perumbavoor. Instead, the Congress leaders were engaged in organising protests to save the face of the Gandhi family who were reportedly linked to the tainted VVIP chopper deal, Ms. Irani added. The Union Minister said the NDA government had taken several initiatives in the State such as establishing an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT). The government had decided to provide free higher education to students belonging to the poor sections of
society in all IITs in the country to ensure higher education to the marginalised section of the people, she said. The government had earmarked Rs. 6 crore for the educational sector in the hill district of Wayanad, and it had taken the initiative to realise the Nanjangud-Nilambur railway project, the Minister said.
She said both the LDF and UDF in the State had no development agenda for the progress of the State. The lives of the marginalised section of people, including tribespeople, were in peril under the successive governments, Ms. Irani said adding that the tribal-friendly policies of the NDA government had attracted leaders like C.K. Janu to join the alliance.

few days back a news article about kr said that traffic on kr was 175% of its design capacity.
Hungry or otherwise it is difficult to introduce anything new with that level of saturation.
