The Railways has proposed to a new coach design which would have improved furnishings and better hygiene and housekeeping facilities. The coaches will have intensive mechanised cleaning and will be subjected to comprehensive pest and rodent control treatment. Attendants will be posted in each coach to address problems related to hygiene like maintaining clean toilets and keeping coaches clean. The interior furnishing of the trains will be upgraded, with about 12 coaches planned to be manufactured on a pilot basis with the new furnishings. 25 AC and non-AC coaches with improved furnishing are being planned to be introduced this year. Colour schemes in coaches will be reviewed and new options suggested by professional agencies.
