What are Super AC Coaches? Which trains will have them, and when?

राजधानी एक्सप्रेस में अब ‘सुपर एसी’ कोच भी लगाए जाएंगे. रायबरेली कोच कारखाने को इस परियोजना को पूरा करने का जिम्मा सौंपा गया है.
परियोजना में शामिल रेल मंत्रालय के एक वरिष्ठ अधिकारी ने बताया कि केवल 44 बर्थ वाले सुपर एसी कोच की डिजाइन को अंतिम रूप दिया जा रहा है. रायबरेली कोच कारखाने को इसका एक मॉडल बनाने के निर्देश जारी किए गए हैं. वर्तमान में राजधानी एक्सप्रेस के द्वितीय श्रेणी के एसी कोच में 55 बर्थ और तृतीय में 72 बर्थ होती हैं.
सुपर एसी कोच का किराया अभी
निर्धारित नहीं किया गया है. इसके द्वितीय श्रेणी एसी कोच के किराए से ज्यादा और प्रथम एसी श्रेणी के किराए से कम रहने की संभावना है. रायबरेली कोच कारखाने को प्रथम चरण में ऐसे 25 सुपर एसी कोच बनाने को कहा गया है.
अधिकारी ने बताया कि नए कोच का खास गुण यह होगा कि इनमें राजधानी के मौजूदा कोचों की तुलना में जगह ज्यादा होगी. इसके बाद हम ऐसे कोच दूसरी मेल और एक्सप्रेस ट्रेनों में भी लगाने के बारे में विचार कर सकते हैं.
इन कोचों का निर्माण रेल बजट में प्रस्तावित किया गया था. इन नए कोच की खिड़कियां अपेक्षाकृत बड़ी होंगी और पैर रखने के लिए भी ज्यादा जगह होगी, खास तौर पर साइड की बर्थ पर यात्रा करने वाले यात्रियों के लिए.
कम वजन वाले ये सुपर एसी कोच स्टेनलेस स्टील के बने होंगे और इनमें सुरक्षा संबंधी सभी विशेषताएं होंगी. प्रस्तावित सुपर एसी कोच के अलावा रायबरेली कारखाना आधुनिक लिंक हॉफमैन बुश कोच भी बना रहा है. अधिकारी ने बताया कि कारखाने में छह एलएचबी कोच पूरी तरह तैयार कर लिए गए हैं.
इस कारखाने का उद्घाटन रायबरेली की सांसद और कांग्रेस अध्यक्ष सोनिया गांधी ने 2009 में किया था. संभावना व्यक्त की जा रही है कि यह कारखाना हर साल लगभग 1,000 कोच बना कर रेलवे की बढ़ती हुई मांगों को पूरा करे.
उन्होंने कहा कि हमारा लक्ष्य प्रति वर्ष 1,000 एलएचबी कोच बनाना है. ट्रेनों में परंपरागत कोच की जगह अब धीरे-धीरे उच्च गुणवत्ता वाले स्टील के बने कोच एलएचबी लगाए जाएंगे. वर्तमान में राजधानी और शताब्दी में ऐसे ही कोच हैं.

Sir, what Venkat has stated is correct. The AC Super Class will be positioned as an intermediate class in between 1AC and 2AC. Instructions have accordingly been given to RCF, Kapurthala, for manufacture of coaches.
Ii The General Managers,
RCF, Kapurthala
Western Railway, Mumbai
In consonance with Para 54 of Hon'ble MR's -Budget Speech 2011-12 relating to
introduction of a new Super AC Class of travel, Board have approved of the following for
manufacture/retro fitment of coaches for the Super AC class:
(1) The Super AC class would be conceptualized in between the existing I AC and AC 2
Tier. The interior aesthetics and comfort ievels in these coaches shall be comparable
to world class standards, duly optimizing on the space availability and ergonomics.
As a pilot project in 2011-12, 25 such new Super AC coaches would be built at RCF
on LHB-FIAT EOG platform while retrofiment shall .also be carried out in 25
conventionallCF design AC 2-Tier coaches (EOG/SG) on Western Railway.
(2) The incremental cost towards the upgraded furnishings and interiors in the Super AC
coaches shall be funded through the existing bulk RSP sanctions 2011-12 (figuring
under "Carriages" - Item No. 470) at an estimated unit cost of RS.18 lakhs/coach.
(3) The design development and interior furnishing of Super AC coaches under the pilot
project as above may be taken up on a limited tender basis through M/s Kemrock and
M/s Hindustan Fibers, the professional agencies in the field of Rail car interiors
currently engaged for the work of developing of select coaches to world class
standards during their refurbishment at MLR Workshop/BhopaIIWCR.
(i) The passenger carrying capacity shall be 44 for a new LHB FIAT EOG coach. For
the retrofiment on a ICF design coach, there may be a proportionate reduction in
passenger carrying capacity. The layout shall have optimal utilization of the space
for seats and berths in the transverse directions. Few longitudinal side berths could
be done away with, providing for the accessories and utilities like linen storage, mini
cloak room, electrical cubical etc.
(ii) No sliding doors shall be provided for transverse side berths/cabins. Aesthetically
appealing screens, with cut outs serving the purpose of footsteps for access to the
upper berths can be considered.
(iii) Added comfort needs to be provided by means of regulated temperature control for
AC in each cabin, energy efficient aesthetically appealing LED light fittings including
berth reading lights with adjustable focus and laptop/mobile charging sockets etc.
(iv) Suitable arrangements for augmenting the electrical power supply and feed from
adjacent Sleeper Class coaches etc. by employing 2 X 12 KW Altemator and
650 Ah capacity VRLA Battery, may be considered for the Self Generating ICF
design AC 2-Tier coaches identified for retrofiment to Super AC Class.
(v) A modem sub pantry comprising of water cooler, food warmer to accommodate a
food trolley with a capacity of abQut 70 trays and a water boiler may be provided.
Hot air fan circulation may be examined for adaption for food warming requirement.
(vi) Modular toilets with fittings and amenities as in a standard LHB design coach' shall
be provided in these coaches as well.
(vii) Space availability, ergonomics and costs permitting, infotainment infrastructure can
also be considered but restrided to provision of down drop screens for playing of
prerecorded audio- visuals.
(5) Board desires that time lines be drawn to facilitate introdudion of Super AC coaches
in regular service by Od., 2011. RCF and WR may accordingly take up the project
on topmost priority, in consultation with RDSOIWCR and advise the milestones for
Board's information.

In AC super class ,the coaches are likely to be two-tier, they will not have any longitudinal side berths. That space will be used for accessories and utilities like linen storage, mini cloakrooms and electrical cubicles.
Unlike AC 1, there will be no sliding doors for each cabin. Instead, the ministry has asked the manufacturing units to consider the provision of “aesthetically appealing screens, with cut-outs serving the purpose of foot-steps for access to the upper berths”.
The ministry also plans to enhance the comfort level by introducing regulated temperature control for ACs
in each cabin, energy-efficient aesthetically-appealing LED light fittings including reading lights with adjustable focus and laptop and mobile charging sockets.
