Indian Railways has announced plans to produce 10,000 non-air-conditioned coaches by the end of the fiscal year 2025-26. This initiative aims to address the travel needs of common passengers, with 53% of the new coaches designated as general coaches.

The majority of the new coaches, including Amrit Bharat general coaches, will cater to the general passenger segment, ensuring affordable travel options. The annual production program considers dynamic rail service demands influenced by seasonal changes and increasing passenger traffic.

By the end of the fiscal year 2025-26, Indian Railways plans to have 10,000 non-AC coaches in service, reflecting a commitment to meeting the needs of a growing and diverse passenger base.
