The upcoming railway budget is expected to propose putting an additional general compartment in every train.

Passengers will be allowed to travel in the extra coach on a general ticket, without any reservation, sources said.

Based on the concept of Antyodaya, the philosophy of Deendayal Upadhyay, which talks about upliftment of the people on the last rung of the society, the extra coach will be added to the end of trains.

However, premier trains have been excluded from this plan.

Sources said that influential people can travel by air or by train the next day, in case they don't get reservation, but the poor man has no other option. This new coach will help them travel in case of an emergency.

As per the current rules, a train can't have more than 24 coaches.
