Train passengers can now book bedrolls online and also at the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC)-run food outlets at stations.

“As a passenger-friendly measure, we have introduced e-bedroll facility that allows passengers to order bedrolls online and also at the counters of food plazas at stations,” IRCTC CMD A.K. Manocha said.

Initially, the facility will be introduced on a trial basis at four stations this month. These stations are New Delhi, Hazrat Nizamuddin, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) and Mumbai Central.

Passengers can avail this facility by paying Rs 140 for two bed sheets and a pillow and Rs 110 for a blanket. These can be purchased together at a cost of Rs 250 or can be purchased separately.

Mr. Manocha said a major feature of the scheme is that the bedroll is a takeaway facility and passengers can take it home. More info
