The Railway Board issued a circular to the ICF, telling the Chennai-based coach factory to manufacture four more Train-18 sets in the ongoing production year. Before this, the ICF had received a directive to manufacture another Train-18 set by March 2019.
In the circular, it was said that a Piyush Goyal led-meeting of the Railway Board took place on 5 December. At the meeting, the board said, “necessary action should be taken” to manufacture four Train-18’s in the ongoing year.
In the circular, the Railway Board lauded success of “new indigenous train set (T-18)” while adding that necessary changes in the production programme (of ICF) will be communicated shortly. Read More
