Central Railway rake with clubbed ladies coaches to arrive only after June

MUMBAI: Central Railway’s plan to introduce a 15-car rake in which all the five ladies coaches are clubbed together has been delayed. The rake, which was proposed to be launched on April 15, will now roll out only after June.

The clubbing of all five ladies coaches is expected to ensure better security for women passengers.

Subodh Jain, member (engineering), said, “We are retrofitting the rake to enhance its capacity. We hope to complete this work by June 30 after which the rake can be introduced.”
