NEW DELHI: Prepare travellers can now e-book bedrolls on-line and also at the IRCTC-operate foodstuff outlets at stations.
As a passenger-welcoming measure, we have to introduce e-bedroll facility that permits travellers to order bedrolls on the web and also at the counters of foods plazas at stations, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) CMD AK Manocha said.
At first, the facility will be released on a demo foundation at four stations this month. These stations are New Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and Mumbai Central. Travellers can avail this facility by having to pay Rs one hundred forty for two bed sheets and a pillow and Rs a hundred and ten for a blanket. These can be bought together at a price of Rs 250 or can be bought individually.
Manocha said a main function of the scheme is that the bedroll is a takeaway facility and travellers can get it house. At the moment, bedrolls are offered only in AC classes in trains, now there is arrangement for sleeper course passengers to avail a takeaway bedroll kit at a extremely concessional price tag, he explained.
Additionally if a passenger of AC class also likes to purchase a new bedroll he can also opt for this service. The bedroll kit can be booked on e-ticketing site of IRCTC. “Passenger can also obtain them from the IRCTC’s vending units at the station,” he mentioned.
