Khadi Commission seeks payment for Rs 39 crore linen after railways cancels

The Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) has written to the railway ministry seeking payment for orders worth Rs 39.25 crore for the supply of linen after the national carrier cancelled the orders.

The Khadi body said non-payment for the linen orders, which were designed especially with Indian Railways’ logo, would lead to an “irreparable loss”.

This comes in the backdrop of the national carrier’s decision to end supply of linen, including bedsheets and pillow covers, to passengers travelling in air-conditioned coaches in a bid to prevent the spread of Covid disease.

KVIC chairman Vinai Kumar Saxena, in a letter written to Railway Board CEO VK Yadav on September 15, said that Khadi India had received orders worth Rs 39.25 crore from the Railways to provide linen to railways across several zones for production of polyvastra bedsheet
