Strengthening the capabilities of the nation in the united fight against COVID, the Ministry of Railways has deployed nearly 4 thousand Isolation Coaches with almost 64 thousand beds.

These Isolation Coaches can be easily moved and positioned at places of demand on the Indian Railways network.

As per States’ demand, at present 191 coaches have been handed over to various states for Covid care with a bed-capacity of 2990 beds. Isolation Coaches are presently utilised at Delhi, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh. The Railways has also positioned 50 coaches at major cities of Uttar Pradesh like Faizabad, Bhadohi, Varanasi, Bareli and Nazibabad.
