Took this pic last week of BNC DEMU shed logo.
Could someone please let me know if there are other DEMU sheds in IR?
Also will DLS and DTS be sufficient to maintain DEMUs or is a separate shed required?

If I remember correctly, Jalandhar also has a DMU shed.
A DLS can handle the engine maintenance and some other things, but complete maintenance of a DMU/DEMU would require more equipment and infrastructure. Longer pit lines would be required to accommodate the longer rakes and also different spare parts and machinery would be required to manage the maintenance of the power cars and the distributed traction.
But the difference is more in scale than technicality.
