Jalandhar: Punjab's Kapurthala based Rail Coach Factory (RCF) has produced record number of coaches in this financial year end as it reached the mark of 1701 coaches against installed capacity of 1500 coaches per annum.
Senior RCF spokesperson Virendra Kumar Vij told PTI 'this year we have produced 200 more rail coaches than the required capacity of 1500 coaches. We have produced 1701 coaches in financial year end March 31, 2014.'
Vij said the RCF had targetted production of 1,600 coaches till year end, but it has exceeded the expectations.
year, RCF had produced 22 different variants of 1680 coaches of high-speed trains like Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Double Decker and other trains,' he said.
Besides its own production, 150 unfurnished coaches were also turned out for RCF Rae Bareli, which is a new production unit of Indian Railways where production activity has recently started, Vij added.
The RCF spokesperson said that the factory in association with DRDE, also developed a highly cost-effective indigenous technology for treatment of faecal waste in coaches.
'We have started fitting these bio toilets in all new coaches. Total 2096 biotoilets have been fitted in 2013-14.
This will help in providing an almost maintenance free and a low cost solution to the problem of open defecation on the railway tracks,' Vij said.
In order to provide timely alarm to the passengers and crew in case of any fire incidence in the train has also been provided on stainless steel coaches.
