Reportedly, IR has been urged to convert the Puri-Hatia Tapaswini Express to Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) design coaches. The train connects Puri with other areas and passes through Odisha and Jharkhand. It has been operative since 1996 and is frequently used by commuters.

The LHB coaches have enhanced safety features with modular interior and fittings, more seating capacity with less noise and other attributes like high-capacity cooling, improved suspension system which will make it a hassle-free journey.
