How many extra coaches are joined?

Yes, Extra coaches are attached on a periodic basis and not for single days. And this depends more or less on the trends of booking and waiting list obtained from Advance Reservation data. Making efficient arrangements for reservation of seats/berths and compartments is one of the important functions of the railway and particular attention must be paid to this aspect of railway working by proper and constant supervision, checking of reservation offices, frequent planning for the clearance of traffic, timely attachment of additional coaches, etc. If a decision is taken sufficiently in advance to attach an additional coach when rush of traffic so justifies.
