As there is an increase in the passengers travelling in express trains, the railway department has decided to increase the coaches. The permissible limit for an express coach is 24 but now the coaches will be extended to 26. This would increase the number of berth in each coach.

These coaches would be increased in those 5 express trains going on different routes which also could manage the infrastructure, as it would be difficult to manage such long trains.

The announcement about the increased coaches would be made only after the Commissioner of Railway Safety sanctions the clearance about the same. The plan for bringing the increase has been proposed long time before but due to the lack of infrastructure it could not be possible.

Infrastructure for supporting these trains has been started. These infrastructures include the length of the platform and the loopholes requirements for commencing such trains.
