Union Minister of Railways Piyush Goyal recently shared a video on his Twitter page, where some railway officials can be seen demonstrating how the new model will work.
As seen in the video, an additional foldable plank has been put in between the seat and the window when the passenger uses the berth as a seat. When he wants to avail the sleeping arrangement, first you need to fold the backrest of the two seats as normal and then pull out the plank and place it over the seat. Now, it will provide a comfortable experience.
Tweeting the video, Piyush Goyal said, “Indian Railways is attempting to make the travel of the passengers convenient. This is an example of that. Some changes have been made in the seats, which will make the journey of passengers more comfortable.”
