Good and welcomes this Temperature Controlled Coaches.It is not a Air conditioned Coaches.
So our FM and IR shall not be imposed GST for these travel.
This Temperature Controlled coaches have to be clubbed with Sleeper class coaches for all benefits and 1.5 times Sleeper charges have to be levied for the common people.
Moreover ,In these TC coaches Thatkal and Airfare Premium Thatkal shall not be imposed for the benefits of common people.If premium Thatkal imposed the final slab shall be higher than Airfares.
These TC class coaches are just upgraded version of the Sleeper class coaches only.
During the congress regime the Sleeper class coaches are upgraded with cushioned berths without any hike in fares.
So these Temperature Controlled Coaches fares shall not be increased beyond 1.5 times of sleeper class fares and that too profitable to IR ,since these TC coaches replaces Sleeper class coaches and revenue increased by 150% over sleeper class coaches .Operation & Maintenance of these TC coaches are also just increased to 125% over sleeper class coaches.

These coaches shall be air conditioned only, and the temperature shall be kept higher so that the smaller and cheaper acs with lower power consumption shall suffice.
Success depends on the fare structure. If fare is kept just 20% cheaper than ACIII means maintaining same profitability as ACIII not many SL class pax shall migrate to the new AC class. Fare has to be 35-40% lesser for 80 paxs per LHB coach (SL coach layout) & excluding bedding cost.
