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.

नयी दिल्ली ,17 सितंबर (सन्मार्ग) सार्वजनिक निजी साझेदारी (पीपीपी) मॉडल के तहत विकसित किये जाने वाले रेलवे स्टेशनों के साथ ही 10 से 15 प्रतिशत ऐसे रेलवे स्टेशनों पर भी यात्रियों को उपयोग शुल्क देना होगा जिनका पुनर्विकास नहीं किया जा रहा है।
रेलवे ने पिछले दिनों 90 रेलवे स्टेशनों को पीपीपी मॉडल पर विकसित करने की घोषणा की थी। उस समय कहा गया था कि इन रेलवे स्टेशनों पर हवाई अड्डों की तर्ज पर उपयोग शुल्क देना होगा जो हर यात्री के किराये में जोड़ा जायेगा। रेलवे ने अब इसे उन सभी स्टेशनों पर लागू करने का फैसला किया जहाँ यात्रियों की आवाजाही अधिक है या भविष्य में बढ़ने की उम्मीद है।

बोर्ड के अध्यक्ष विनोद कुमार यादव ने आज यहाँ एक संवाददाता सम्मेलन में कहा कि देश में सात हजार रेलवे स्टेशन हैं। इस फैसले के कारण 10 से 15 प्रतिशत स्टेशनों पर उपयोग शुल्क लगाया जायेगा। इस प्रकार देश में सात सौ से एक हजार स्टेशनों पर यात्रियों को यह नया शुल्क देना होगा। रेलवे जल्द ही इसके लिए अधिसूचना जारी करेगा।
उन्होंने बताया कि रेलवे स्टेशनों के विकास और वहाँ यात्रियों को अच्छी सुविधा देने के लिए उपयोग शुल्क लगाना जरूरी है। हालाँकि उन्होंने यह आश्वासन भी दिया कि यह शुल्क बेहद कम होगा और इससे आम लोगों पर बोझ नहीं पड़ेगा।
