Indian Railways' first full Economy AC-3 tier train will run between Delhi and Patna from October 29. The new service will be started as a special train in the festive season and to begin with a total of 5 trips are planned, a railway official told TOI. The special Economy AC-3 tier train will have 20 coaches and will run under the Northern railway zone, the official said. The base fare of Economy AC-3 tier coach is 8% less than the normal AC-3 class of coaches. TOI had earlier reported that Indian Railways is looking to run its first full Economy AC-3 tier train in the festive season to gauge occupancy trends and demand. While inspecting the new coaches this month, Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw had said that efforts should be made to run a train with only Economy AC-3 tier coaches.

has already been running the new Economy AC coaches in trains since September this year and plans to manufacture a total of 800 such coaches this year. The new coach is said to be the "most affordable" AC travel in its class.
Economy AC coaches were unveiled in February this year wuth 83 berths, 11 more than the conventional AC-3 coaches of railways. The space for the additional berths has been created by moving the main electrical controls under the coach body. To avoid any feeling of congestion for passengers, railways has provided aircraft-style personalised AC vents for each berth.
Other features of the Economy AC coaches include; fire-proof berths, foldable snack tables for aisle berth, personalised reading lights and mobile charging points, modular bio-toilets, one divyang-friendly toilet per coach, modified ladder for easy access to middle and upper berths etc.
The concept of running full Economy AC-3 tier trains is similar to Humsafar Express service which was started in 2016. At the time of introduction, Humsafar Express trains were full AC 3-tier services with more premium offerings in terms of passenger-friendly features.
