Among the announcements in the Railway Budget 2016, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has announced new trains that will not accept reservations. The Antyodaya Express will be a completely unreserved train that will operate on high traffic routes. Antyodaya Express has been classified as a superfast train. While this train is primarily targeted at passengers from the lower income groups, it is a boon even for those travelling last minute. Additionally, Deen Dayalu coaches will also be added to select long-distance trains so passengers can travel without reservation. The coaches will be equipped with more mobile charging points as well as potable drinking water.
