Inclusion of Bedroll Charges in the Fare of Garib Rath Express

The Ministry of Railways has decided that the methodology followed regarding supply of bedrolls in Sleeper Class of Duronto Express trains should also be adopted for Garib Rath Express trains. The passengers will now be required to give the option for the bedrolls while booking ticket by Garib Rath express trains and pay requisite charges @ Rs. 25/- per bedroll at the Booking Counter itself. Similar provision will be made for passengers booking tickets through internet.

The above provisions for supply of bedrolls in Garib Rath Express trains shall be implemented on trial basis for a period of six months to assess the demand for bedrolls by these trains under the scheme. 

At present, these bedrolls are supplied to the passengers on demand and charges collected separately from the passengers. Of late, frequent complaints are received from various sources regarding supply of used bedroll or half set of bedroll to the passengers, excess charging of passengers, non-issuance of receipt etc. Apart from causing discontent amongst passengers, this also leads to loss of revenue to the Railways. 

Once the necessary modifications in the software are made, all Zonal Railways will be intimated the date of effect for the implementation of above mentioned scheme.
