NEW DELHI: The Ministry of Railways has decided to remove LCD screens installed in coaches of premium trains like Tejas Express and Shatabdi Express, as the devices were damaged by passengers. The LCD screens were installed with pre-loaded content for the entertainment of the passengers.
Tejas was inaugurated on May 24, 2017. The train had all the modern facilities like automatic doors, GPS, Fire Smoke Detection System, and CCTV cameras installed. LCD screens were installed to give people a completely different experience. However, Passengers did extensive damage to LCD screens.
Reports said that after the very first travel, LCDs were damaged. Many were missing, while some were damaged or destroyed. These incidents led Railways to rethink its decision to install the screens in the trains.
