South Central Railway has taken up another initiative in the supply of Bed rolls in trains with a view to improve the levels of comfort to the passengers. Under this initiative, woollen blankets are being supplied directly wrapped full length in a cotton cloth cover for enhanced comfort in Train No. 12797/12798 Kacheguda-Chittoor-Kacheguda Venkatadri Express.
Passengers feel better and improved satisfaction since the fabric feel of the cover is softer than that of woollen blankets and gives more warmth. The aesthetic, eye pleasing pastel shaded cover of the blanket can be washed after every trip facilitating maintenance of the blankets with improved hygiene.
In addition, moth repellents are also being placed in the linen storage area in coaches to safeguard the blankets and to counter stale odour from blankets.
As there is positive feedback on this from the passengers, SCR is taking steps to expand this initiative by introducing this measure on other express trains also in a gradual manner.
