भोपाल। ट्रेनों में कंबल, चादर, तकिया समेत कई सुविधाएं फिर मिलेंगी, लेकिन अब ये मुफ्त नहीं दी जाएंगी। यात्रियों को इनके लिए भुगतान करना होगा। रेलवे यात्रियों को पूरी किट उपलब्ध कराएगा, जिसकी कीमत 300 रुपए होगी। पूरी किट खरीदने की अनिवार्यता नहीं होगी। यात्री जरूरत की एक- दो चीजें भी खरीद सकते हैं।खास बात यह है कि यात्री इस किट को घर ले जा सकते हैं। पिछले साल कोरोना के कारण रेलवे ने ट्रेनों में कंबल, चादर, तकिया देना बंद कर दिया था। यात्री काफी समय से इसकी मांग कर रहे थे । अब रेलवे ने पूरी किट उपलब्ध कराने की सुविधा शुरू की है। एक कंबल के लिए 180, तकिए के लिए 70 व चादर के लिए 40 रुपए भुगतान करना होगा।निजी कंपनियों के साथ समझौतारेलवे ने इस सुविधा के लिए निजी कंपनियों के साथ समझौता किया है। सुविधा फिलहाल उत्तर और पूर्व रेलवे ने शुरू की है। मांग...
के अनुसार अन्य जोन में भी इसे शुरू किया जाएगा। डिब्रूगढ़ राजधानी, चेन्नई राजधानी और नई दिल्ली से वाराणसी के बीच चलने वाली महामना एक्सप्रेस में यह सुविधा शुरू हो चुकी है।किट में यह चीजें मिलेंगी300 रुपये वाली किट में यात्रियों को कंबल, बेडशीट, तकिया, तकिया कवर, डिस्पोजेबल बैग, टूथपेस्ट, टूथब्रश, हेयर ऑयल, कंघी, सैनेटाइजर, पेपर सोप और टिश्यू पेपर दिया जाएगा।

Its not mandatory, Where is the loot?
As such passenger operations are subsidised a lot. so its other way round, Pax are looting railways or indirectly tax-payers money being gobbled by so-called poor passengers.

The passengers aren't looting money. It's the politicians first who squeeze railways like a cash cow and then these so called bureaucrats who can't see the writing on the wall if a magnifying glass was given to them. For eg. Railways ran an empty train between Basti and GKP because the latter had no storage space left. Just because someone didn't foresee the problem a decade or two earlier, IR burns lakhs of money. I would go on even to say that these higher class of officials for who special rakes are connected, who get subsidised accomodation in First AC loot railways much more than the average taxpayer.

can't be seen in an independent context, but rather how they form the economy of the region as a whole. As a person once said "First build the railways and then watch as the railways build your country". It's not the taxpayers' fault that dedicated freight corridors aren't built; something that railways surely needs. As the song goes, we are "Only a Pawn in their game".

If subsidy free profits are the sole directive for rail operations in future,
1. Remove it from services category, separate rail ministry and UPSC service cadre both not required.
2. Avoid politicizing the decisions like distributing trains, facilities.
3. Increase fares/cut subsidies directly by informing the public and not through back pocket.
Protect rail properties like precious land from encroachers, tracks from protestors, coaches from stone pelters more than as if its their own personal property.
And if cabinet shows its inability in doing so in the name of public service or due to their vote bank appeasement mindset, then better sell it out to tata /any private party.
But playing this dual sided game of subsidy loot and poor service and then crying foul is not welcome at all.

Passengers are looting because they want and will travel free or at low cost than actual cost

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake.
