Carpets may give a sense of luxury but it have 2 main disadvantage comparing to ordinary covers:

QUESTION: Dear Babak

Thank you.

1. If Railways or Bus (Public and Private) Transport Facilities approaches for you to work as a independent contractor for taking this work, will you accept this after studying their requirements ?.

i.e. Installing and Commissioning Carpet in Trains (Long and Short Distance) as well as Luxury Buses and Local transport Buses.

2. Do you feel Installing Carpet in Trains would be more difficult than fixing Carpet in Buses because of the Length of the Train as compared to the Length of the Bus ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Dear Prashant

1- My general approach is to see what the general requirements of the projects are based on and then decide, then my very global action is to say YES conditionally. Conditions are not very complicated but not restricted to the fee of the project. With a good contract it seems attractive.

2- Carpeting a train is more detailed and naturally it needs more time and expense, but carpeting of a 5 voitures train is easier than 5 bus.
