The Integral Coach Factory (ICF) in Chennai has finally pulled up its socks and has started producing four new rakes a month instead of just one for the suburban train services.
Recently, World Bank officials had expressed their displeasure about the sluggish rate at which Integral Coach Factory was producing the new rakes under the World Bank- funded Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP) 1. Now, since August, ICF has started delivering four rakes per month.
“Six months ago the World Bank was worried about the way the ICF was manufacturing rakes and we expressed this concern to the Mumbai Rail Vikas Corporation (MRVC), ICF and the Railway Board. ICF got its act together and we are very satisfied,” said Hubert Nove-Josserand, senior transport specialist of the World Bank.
