Indian Railways To Provide Bedrolls To Passengers In AC III-Tier Economy Coach
New Delhi: From this week, Indian Railways has decided to provide bedrolls to the passengers travelling in the economy class of the third AC economy class coaches.
As of now, the bedrolls are not provided in the third AC economy class coaches. Berth nos 81,82 and 83 will be used for keeping linen as there is no provision for keeping bedrolls in AC 3 tier economy coach and the passengers who have booked their seats in those three berths will be shifted to an appropriate coach under the emergency quota.
As of now, Indian Railways provide bed rolls comprising one blanket, one pillow, 2-bed sheets and one face towel, free of cost to all passengers travelling by AC First Class, AC 2-tier sleeper and AC 3-tier sleeper classes including those boarding from intermediate stations.
In the event of a non-supply of a bed roll for any reason, passengers will be entitled to a refund of Rs.20/- at the destination station. However, the claim for such a refund should be registered within 20 hours of the train’s arrival. Journey Ticket supported by a certificate from the Conductor or TTE regarding non-supply of bed roll is to be furnished along with the claim for refund.
