NEW DELHI: The number of people using Metro services has been going up and looking at this increased rush, the Delhi Metro has ordered 131 new trains. Apart from easing the rush in the Metro, the new coaches will have additional features like power connections that will enable passengers to use their laptops and charge their mobiles while travelling on the Metro.

Every new Metro coach of Phase-II will have power supply points for this purpose, reported officials. Said a Delhi Metro official: "The Metro coaches in Phase-II will also have reduced noise levels inside the trains. The DMRC is making major design changes to reduce noise levels by use of special sound absorbing cushions in the walls of the Metro coaches and more buffing on the Metro doors.

" The Phase-II Metro coaches will also provide a much better level of passenger comfort. For the first time, there will be humidity control inside the Metro. The temperature will be maintained at 25 degree Celsius and the relative humidity will be maintained at 60 % during the summer and monsoon months.

Phase-II trains will also have CCTVs inside the coaches apart from the cameras outside, so that the driver can see entry and exit of passengers from the trai
