While these coaches will provide a more comfortable travel compared to Sleeper class, its cost of travel will be less than 3AC coaches. 

So, it’s going to be a great option for all those who don’t want to travel in Sleeper class but can’t afford 3AC.



The proposed full AC trains will have affordable 3 Tier AC coaches apart from AC3 AC2 AND AC1. They will also have automatic doors.

A senior railway ministry official was quoted by HT:
“There will not be any chilling effect like in other AC classes and the temperature will be fixed around 24-25 degrees. The aim is to make the passengers comfortable and not make them feel the outside heat.”
