Dimapur, Aug. 19 (EMN): In an effort to improve lighting in the interior of coaches, the NFR has initiated a drive for replacement of existing incandescent lamps and CFL lights inside coaches by LED lights.

An update from Chief Public Relations Officer NFR issued on Aug. 19 informed that, by doing this not only will there be a saving of energy consumption but also, the inside of the coaches would be brightly illuminated.

So far 1890 coaches are said to have been retrofitted with the LED lights while the entire stock of coaches would be done by September this year. This initiative is said to be a part of the planning of Indian railways for improvement of the travelling experience of the passengers and is being done in tandem with other initiatives for improving the coaches interior to ensure more comfort.
