As you may be aware that last month the Indian Railways resumed the service of providing linen, blankets, and allowing the usage of curtains inside trains with immediate effect.
The linens provided by Indian Railways will include pillows, blankets, sheets, and towels in a sealed cover.
According to the same In a directive given to general managers of all railway zones, the Railway Board indicated that distribution of these supplies will resume immediately.
Later the Ministry of Railways has issued a clarification about the supply of linen in trains and said;
It is informed for the guidance of all concerned that the supply of linen (Bed sheets, Blankets etc.) has been resumed by the Railways from the date the resumption of the same was notified. However, it is being done in a phased manner to ensure proper quality of linen.
This is because a sizeable amount of fresh linen is being procured as a lot of old stock has become unserviceable in the last two COVID years. Railways is working overtime to bring the service back to 100% as it was in Pre-COVID times.
Now, the Western Railway (WR), one of Indian Railways’ 18 zones, has issued a list of 20 pairs of trains in which it has resumed the service of distributing linen and blankets.
