For passengers travelling in the sleeping class, the “Economy” AC-3 coach was designed to offer the “best and cheapest AC travel” service. These coaches are priced 6-7% cheaper than the standard AC-3 service. The data shows that over 21 lakh people travelled in AC-3 tier economy class, earning Rs 231 crore for the Railways between August 2021 and August 2022.
From April to August, 15 lakh people travelled.
Officials said, adding that because it was agreed that the fare shouldn’t be too high, the installation of these coaches was challenging for the Railways. Additionally, it was advised that the fare not be set too low, as doing so would cause losses to begin in the AC-3 tier, which is the most lucrative. 15 lakh passengers went on the new economy bus between April and August of 2022, earning Rs 177 crore.
The experiment, in the opinion of the railway officials, was successful. During this time, there is no decrease in the number of passengers in the standard AC-3 class. In the same time frame, the general AC-3 category brought in Rs 8,240 crore for the railways. The standard AC-3 coaches have 72 seats, whereas the new economy class AC-3 coaches have 83 seats. The redesigned coach has three side berths instead of the two found in the standard AC-3 vehicle.
