New age trains are falling apart

Published in DNA yesterday:

2 years after they were first manufactured by ICF, Chennai, the trains procured under MUTP 1 are already falling apart. Small but important features like latches, handles, wall panels, flooring are found broken. Most trains do not have proper latches and screws on the wall panels are coming off. Local workshops are being forced to put in extra effort and weld these items in the new trains so that they stay in place.

This is not unexpected at all. It was waiting to happen from day one.
