Railways," Agrawal said in a statement.
India's first self-propelled (engine-less) Train 18, which was rolled out last year, presently runs between New Delhi and Varanasi as Vande Bharat Express.
"It is a matter of pride that ICF has rolled out 3,262 coaches last year (2018-19) making ICF the largest coach manufacturer in the world. In the next year itself, ICF will break its own record by producing more than 4,000 coaches," Agrawal said.
The official also said ICF would take up design, development and production of Train 19, a sleeper version of Train 18, in the current year.
According to the release, about ₹2,500 crore infrastructure improvement projects are being planned for coach production units of the Indian Railways.
