NEW DELHI: Teach travellers can now guide bedrolls on the internet and also at the IRCTC-operate food shops at stations.
As a passenger-pleasant evaluate, we have to introduce e-bedroll facility that enables passengers to purchase bedrolls on the web and also at the counters of food plazas at stations, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) CMD AK Manocha stated.
Originally, the facility will be introduced on a demo foundation at 4 stations this thirty day period. These stations are New Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and Mumbai Central. Passengers can avail this facility by spending Rs 140 for two mattress sheets and a pillow and Rs one hundred ten for a blanket. These can be bought jointly at a cost of Rs 250 or can be acquired independently.
Manocha mentioned a key attribute of the scheme is that the bedroll is a takeaway facility and passengers can get it house. At the moment, bedrolls are provided only in AC classes in trains, now there is arrangement for sleeper class passengers to avail a takeaway bedroll kit at a highly concessional value, he stated.
Additionally if a passenger of AC course also likes to buy a new bedroll he can also decide for this provider. The bedroll kit can be booked on e-ticketing site of IRCTC. “Passenger can also obtain them from the IRCTC’s vending models at the station,” he explained.
According to IRCTC the facility is getting introduced on the foundation of a survey carried out amongst rail travellers. IRCTC will expand this facility at a lot more stations soon after evaluating the response.
“IRCTC has released e-catering facility that has drastically expanded the catering choices of travelling passengers. The e-bedroll facility will further upscale and health supplement amenities for them in a novel way,” he included.
