UDAY- UTKRISTA DOUBLE DECKER AIR CONDITIONED YATRI TRAINS will most probably have DD sleeper coaches for overnight journey. BTW even it's prototype hasn't been manufactured yet so all this is just a supposition.

Aren't the proposed UDAYs daytime trains as per IRI?
Even if nighttime, hope they do have sleeper and not chair car, else it will flop in a big way.
The buses with
semi-sleeper or sleeper with AC comfort go zipping on the 4 lane roads. IR trains are no match to compete with that. The state RTCs especially Karnataka and Andhra offer some of the best services in comfort category to compete with private travels. IR can't match the speed and sometimes discounts (on weekdays) of buses like those proposed.

No, if we go according to the budget speech of Rail Minister UDAY would we an over night DD train on congested routes so high probability is there that it would be a Sleeper train.

Only 5 categories of trains are basically required on IR
(1) DMU/EMU-All passenger trains to be coverted to DMU-90-110kmph SG coaches
(2) Express-non acGen,IIS,SL, ACDD ,ACC,EC,AC3E,ACIII,ACII,ACI-110kmph(<55 avg speed), SG coaches
(3) SF Express- non acGen,IIS,SL, ACDD ,ACC,EC,AC3E,ACIII,ACII,ACI-110-130kmph(55+), SG coaches
(4) Special
SF Express- non acGen,IIS,SL, ACDD ,ACC,EC,AC3E,ACIII,ACII,ACI-130kmph (65+),SG/ HOG coaches, better pax amenities
(5) Premium SF Express ( Fully AC) -ACDD,ACC,EC,AC3E,ACIII,ACII,ACI-130-160kmph(65+), HOG coaches, superior pax amenities. All the special trains like Raj/duronto/ACSF/GR/Shatabdi trains must be merged I this class.
(6) A reasonable fare structure need to be adopted like:
Base Fare ratio (approx)(DD-Double Decker,SD-Single Deck)
Non ac DD unreserved Ordy—0.7x
Non ac SD unreserved Ordy—0.8x
Non ac DD unreserved ME-----0.9x
Non ac SD unreserved ME-----1.0x
Non ac DD reserv seat ME-----0.9x
Non ac SD reserv seat ME-----0.9x
Non ac 3T reserv berth ME----1.35x
Ac DD seat reserved ME-------2.0x
AC SD seat reserved ME------2.2x
AC 3TE reserved berth ME----2.5x
AC 3T reserved berth ME------3.0x
AC 2T reserved berth ME------4.2x
AC SD reserv ME----4.5x
AC Ist reserved berth ME------7.5x
Base fare-approximately as per as per above ratio
(7) Safety surcharge & Development surcharge- compulsory to each traveler to ensure safety and capacity augmentation of rail network in the interest of Indian Economy and citizens.
(8) Res.Charge- Res. Charge to double for more than 27 hrs journey and triple for more than 51 hrs journey.
(9) Train Class/Category Charge-10% of base fare for SF, 20% of base fare for SSF, 30% of base fare for PSF
(10) Although lower class fares are a bit on in lower side, Govt may give subsidy/ concession to particular class of travelers or particular group of persons (say patients, journalists, Sr citizens etc) by way of money transfer into their Jan Dhan account linked with the adhar card of the traveller.
(11) The fare of train tickets should be atleast 10% lesser than the equivalent fare charged by the bus operators for similar travel as atleast some benefit of the inherent cost benefits of rail transport over road transport should go the travelers.
(12) Flexi/Suvidha must be dropped however Tatkal Scheme may be continued to facilitate last minute Business travelers at higher charges.(Max. 10% seats in Tatkal quota and Max 30% extra fare)
