The word tare is defined as the 'weight' of the packaging material or container which is used to pack something.
It is the weight of the empty reel, spool or container.
The word tare is also the weight of a railway car when it is not loaded.
In regards to coaches, Tare means weight of empty but fully constructed coach. (no passengers/luggage inside)
ohh thnx!! mns here its 39.2 tonnes. wat about POH?
Each coach which carries passengers on Indian Railways undergoes what is termed as Periodic Overhaul (POH) every 12 months. You can find at the back of each coach the date markings of the date when POH was done, and the scheduled date of return for the next overhaul.
Technically, this should be 12 months. But a lot of coaches are actually marked for 18 months. Some are marked 12, but it is common to find coaches which have exceeded that. This means that instead of every 12 months, a coach undergoes overhaul...
