Western Railways to provide disposable bedroll for long-distance journeys at a cost of Rs 150

After almost two years now, the Western Railway has finally started serving disposable linen starting November 27. At present, passengers needed to carry their bedding, bedroll and quilt while travelling overnight inside long-distance trains. However, now the bedsheets will be provided which will be disposable and it will cost Rs 150 to purchase from the vendors selling it inside the train.

This comes at a time when Indian Railways aren’t providing full-time linen to passengers inside long journey trains.

Starting Saturday, the disposable linen packets are being sold inside trains 12951 Mumbai-Delhi Rajdhani, 12953 August Kranti Express and 12903 Golden Temple Mail. They added another train 12925 Paschim Express on November 28.

According to sources in Western Railway, the railways have appointed a private contractor for selling bedroll kits in these four trains.

“We permitted the contractor for selling these disposable bedrolls around 15-16 November. At least two persons appointed by this private contractor will board the trains and sell these disposable bedrolls and linen to passengers at a cost of Rs 150 per packet. Passengers, after buying, can either carry it along with them or hand it over at the end of a journey which will then be properly disposed of,” explained a WR official.

Due to the pandemic, the Indian Railways discontinued the practice of providing reusable blankets, sheets and pillows in trains to provide a hygienic travel experience to the passengers.

Instead, the passengers were encouraged to bring their linen while travelling in trains. This, however, according to railway passenger associations, was causing inconvenience to passengers who have to carry additional baggage for their linen.

“This is a good move to provide disposable kit, however, Rs 150 seems a bit expensive and its amount should be reduced,” said Subhash Gupta, president, Rail Yatri Parishad.

As per the specifications of this disposable travel kit; each packet shall contain a white coloured bedsheet (1220mm x 1905mm), grey/blue coloured blanket (1370mm x 1980mm), inflatable white coloured air pillow and pillow cover, face towel/napkin, three-ply face mask and sachet of sanitiser.

The WR authorities had also started a UV based luggage sanitization machine at Mumbai Central earlier this year, which has been shut due to poor response from people.

Hello #admins and #moderator sir, the Google maps now shows the completed FTD bypass line in its latest imagery. Can someone update IRI's atlas to show the bypass and PF no. 3's dedicated line towards UJN in FTD's station map?

Also, does anyone know about what will the brand new platform on FTD bypass line be called and coded? Will it be named FTDN similar to Ratlam New RTMN, or will it be just another PF (PF no. 4) of FTD station similar to the newly constructed island platform of
