“We have announced it in our budget. We will deploy these Deen Dayalu coaches in those routes which have heavy demand for getting seats,” Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said after inaugurating the first Deen Dayalu coach.
Estimated to cost about Rs 81 lakh per coach, about 700 such modern coaches will be manufactured in the current fiscal. “Wherever there is a demand we will deploy this. It has been manufactured at ICF,” Prabhu said.
