Kolkata Metro: Non AC coaches will no longer work in Kolkata Metro, this is the plan ahead.
Kolkata Metro: Non-AC coaches will no longer work, Kolkata Metro said in a press release on Friday. Kolkata Metro Rail will also officially announce October 24, the 37th operational day of the organization. With the increasing use of new trains, Metro Rail finally plans to withdraw the first batch of non-AC coaches, which was first introduced 33 years ago. The new trucks supplied by the Integral Coach Factory (ICF) in Perambor have finally become operational after an initial technical glitch, Metro officials said, adding that the number of AC trains has increased since December.
Earlier, only 60 percent of Metro’s planes were cold. The official said that the old non-AC racks would be phased out with more AC racks on the ships. The last seven racks manufactured by BEL will be removed in March, the official said. Metro services in the city began in 1984. Between 1984 and 1988, seven non-AC yellow racks were ordered.
The last non-AC coach of Kolkata Metro will run on October 24 at 5:30 pm. The initial station will be Mahanaik Atam Kumar, and the final destination will be Nopara Car Shed. It is worth mentioning that the first metro train was an underground metro, and its operation was started on October 24, 1984. The foundation stone of Kolkata Metro Rail was laid by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
