Beijing: A Chinese train manufacturing firm today said it has sold 21 rail compartments to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

CSR Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive, a subsidiary of major Chinese train manufacturer CSR Corporation, has supplied 21 cars to Delhi`s metro rail system, the company said.

The sale marked the company`s second order from India as it had exported 15 metro cars to the Delhi Metro in 2010, state-run Xinhua news agency reported today.
The locomotive company said the trains would be more energy-efficient and be an industry model in India, which is affected by power shortages.
CSR is the world`s largest manufacturer of electric locomotives and is China`s leading bullet-train maker.
