**Promotion or Demotion?**
Now a days IR is converting all the passenger trains into EMU/ MENU/ DEMU rakes. Though this is not a new initiative, IR used to already convert short-journey passengers, but they were mainly confined into short-journey trains. But recently long-journey passengers are being converted too. Ex: 63141/63142 (226 km), 63553/63554 (479km), Couple of SDAH-LGL Passengers (227 km), BWN- HTE Passenger (350 Km) etc.
Do you support this initiative of replacing conventional Passenger rakes with EMU/MENU/DEMU rakes as taken by IR?
1) Yes. it speeds up TT
2) Yes. it reduces the operational cost
4) Yes. but only if the journey time is not more than 3 hrs
5) Never. Multiple Unit rakes are way less comfortable than conventional rakes and they don't have Toilets
