Mumbai currently has only one 12 coach AC local train. In March when temperature soared, about 3 lakh passengers traveled by AC train.
Integral Coach Factory planned to manufacture another 4 AC trains by December this year but they will be able to manufacture only two.
This is because of inadequacy of electrical parts sent by Bharat Heavy Electrical Limited.
There will be more halts for the AC train including Marine Lines, Charni Road, Grant Road, Dahisar, Mira Road, and Nallasopara.
