Actually this is what I was talking about. Its a seat fabricated on demand and not a mass-produced one, it reclines 180 degrees to form a berth and also folds when required to give you a seat. Paulo is known for their innovations, at one time they had a bus with 2 classes of seating, a door in the middle, if you turned left after entering, you had 2x1 seating layout and if you turned right after entering, you had 2x2 seating layout

May be. But the bus in question has normal seats below and berths above. I had seen the particular bus a few months back. Paulo is known for their innovativeness - and introducing MAN Seater-Sleeper was one of them.

And, I remember the buses you posted about. IIRC, those were Damodar built buses with the characteristic 4 piece glass at the back.
