CORRELATION BETWEEN SIDE BERTH, the TOTAL NUMBER & LENGTHS of COACH IN DIFFERENT CLASSE :
However, LHB coaches are longer than ICF coaches by about 1.5 meters or so. This allows more seats/berths to be accommodated in an LHB coach.
* This increase in length has translated into increased number of rows ( cubicles ) in each compartment in Sleeper Class 10 in LHB compared to 9 in ICF .2A 9compared to 7& 1/2 in ICF Coach .
* That in turn has effectuated in offering more Berths in compartment in L.H.B (Linke Hofmann Busch ) in all classes in a coach . This increase in number can be seen in the attachement that gives class wise . In sleper Class 78 in LHB compared tp 72 in ICF . And 54 compared to 46 in ICF .
L.H.B. coaches have incorporated some featres to facilitate the modern Rail traveler .
As the number of Rows decrease in higher class the length of the SIDE BERTH INCREASES
Yet the design Department R.D.S.O. has to be more sensitive to the modern Indian'd need and Dimentions sooner the better . The design and the approval trial, all shouldn't be over in 60 days and the roll out another 30 days .
IF DELAYED THE RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT WILL END UP MANUFACTORING FOR YESTERDAYS NEED AND NOT TOMORROWS NEED & DEMANDS OF CUSTOMER .
Little more proactivity and speed is solicited more
Shri SUBBIAH Ramdass has taken a very pessimistic view. Under those circumstances nothing need be done and no improvement will ever take place. We are considering facilities to passengers who pay for the services. We are not aware nor right now concerned with woes of vendors. However there is no doubt that corruption at all levels and all activities is a fact and needs strong handling to eliminate same.
