3289 Coaches manufactured by Railway Production Units during 2013-14

As the production capacities of  Indian Railways own  Production Units namely, Integral Coach Factory/Chennai, Rail Coach Factory/Kapurthala and Rail Coach Factory/Rae Bareli, were not sufficient to meet the demand of coaches for Indian Railways, procurement was also made from other organizations namely Bharat Earth Movers Limited (BEML). Titagarh Wagons Limited (TWL), Jessops, BESCO Limited and Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), 2924 coaches were supplies during the last 5 years i.e. from 2009-10 to 2013-14 by these firms to Indian Railways. The coaches manufactured by Railway Production Units during last five years are as given below :-
