These sectors have been further split into 12 clusters- 4 clusters for Mumbai region, 3 for Delhi- and one each for Patna, Guwahati, Chennai, Secunderabad and Howrah.

These operators are likely to run 16 -coach trains along these high-density routes and tap unfulfilled demand for a 35-year concession period.
