'Kavach couldn't have stopped Odisha train accident': Here's what Vande Bharat maker said
Odisha train accident: Opposition parties questioned government over the absence of ‘Kavach’ system while railway expert claimed it wouldn't have helped
The Odisha train accident which has claimed close to 300 lives has highlighted the role of the Automatic Train Protection (ATP) System called ‘Kavach’ and how it could have possibly averted the Coromandel Express train accident. The railway line where the Odisha train accident occurred was not equipped with the 'Kavach' system. But, a railway expert Sudhanshu Mani who is the brain behind India's Vande Bharat Express opined that the ‘Kavach’ system could't have helped to prevent the Odisha train accident.
