Indian Railways decide to use 60% isolation coaches meant for coronavirus to run Shramik Special Trains.

The Railways has decided to use 60% of the 5,200 isolation coaches meant for coronavirus-infected people to run Shramik Special trains.

Officials said that these non AC coaches will not be reconverted into normal coaches, but will be used as “they are” for these services.

Officials said that since these coaches have been lying idle after being converted into isolation wards and were yet to be deployed, the railways have decided to use them to operate the migrant special services.(Courtesy:PTI)
