Eight trains in Rangiya division of the Northeast Frontier Railway have begun operations with some pink coaches, exclusively for women.
NFR Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) Pranav Jyoti Sharma said on Sunday that this colour will help the women passengers to easily identify the coaches even during rush hours.

The Railway authorities will deploy RPF and ticket checking staff to stabilise the new system.
