ABOUT THE CONFERENCE


Institute of Rolling Stock Engineers, with support from Indian Railways and RITES, is organizing an international technical conference on "Rail Coach Interiors: Innovation, Comfort, Safety" at New Delhi on 9th October and 10th October 2015.

Indian Railways have a total fleet of 62000 coaches (approx.) running in around 12600 trains and carries over 25 million passengers daily. To meet growing expectations of the passengers for comfort and safety, there is need to upgrade interiors of Indian Railway (IR) coaches for better comfort and safety through use of innovative materials and designs. Majority fleet on Indian Railway coaches is non-air-conditioned which poses different challenges in their interior designs. These coaches traverse the length and breadth of the country with varying climatic conditions. This would require adaptation of proven products and technologies under IR operating conditions. New ideas and concepts also need to be tried out.

Research Designs & Standards Organisation (RDSO) is the R&D arm of Indian Railways located at Lucknow responsible for R&D works in all railway related disciplines and leads the process of technology induction. Working directly under ministry of Railways it is also responsible for standardization of all railway systems on Indian Railways.

RITES Ltd. is a Government of India Enterprise under the aegis of Indian Railways. An ISO 9001-2008 company, RITES is a multi-disciplinary consultancy organization in the fields of transport, infrastructure and related technologies.
