The project mainly focused on creating an efficient design of general class coaches for Indian railways to provide a better journey experience and covering the development of a range of products to fulfill the demand. It primarily aimed to redesign the general coaches as the existing design is not upgraded and lacks a grass-root level and user-centric design approach. Starting with primary research, the project covered an intensive journey of the southern and eastern part of India in the general class coaches of Indian railways. Brainstorming, ideations and solutions were described using idea cards, providing the final design of the general class coaches.
