The Indian Railways has rolled out a new smart feature in Howrah-New Delhi Rajdhani Express. Passengers travelling in the first coach AC of the Rajdhani Express will now have access to smart switchable windows and coupe doors that will turn the transparent glass to opaque.
The smart switch feature in the trains is another attempt of the Indian Railways to ramp up the passenger travel experience. The innovative feature is aimed at providing the passengers travelling in the first class coach with a sense of privacy through the opaque glass which also prevents UV radiation.
This feature will replace the curtains that the train’s windows used to have earlier. The window glass can be turned ‘on or off’ to keep it transparent or opaque as per the passenger convenience. The union minister for railways Piyush Goyal tweeted a video introducing the new feature in the Rajdhani.
He said that with the aim of promoting innovation and technology, railways is introducing smart switchable windows and coupe doors in the first AC coach of Howrah-New Delhi Rajdhani Express.
