IRCTC Big Update! Blankets, bedsheets could make re-entry to trains from THIS date

The Railway Board is expected to resume offering bed sheets, pillows, and blankets in trains starting from December 1, according to sources. However, the authorities are expected to start offering these services in trains, operated by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), in a phased manner.

In March 2020, the Railway Board had decided to discontinue providing sheets, pillows and blankets on trains in view of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the number of COVID-19 cases under control right now, the service could start from December 1.

Previously, reports had pointed out that the bedsheet, pillow and blanket facility could resume with the onset of winters in the country.

Meanwhile, the Railway Board has also recently issued an order to resume serving cooked meals to passengers on trains, another service that was discontinued due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Ready-to-eat meals will also continue to be served to passengers, the Railway Board said in its letter to IRCTC.
