Further toilets in these coaches will have a special gel coating, which will make them “graffiti-proof”.

For now, these new AC III Tire coaches will only be deployed on the all Humsafar service, which is soon set to start operating between Delhi and Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh and has currently got four trains under its service.
These new coaches have been designed by the Rail Coach Factory in Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh, which is currently working a set of coaches for the fifth train which is set for production and would roll out later.

As a solution, the designers have tucked a separate thin berth sideways between the wall and the side-lower seats.
These thin births now work as a hand-rest for passengers till they pull it up.
