The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) and the Bangalore division of the South Western Railways (SWR) launched an e-bedroll facility and water-vending machines at the Krantiveera Sangolli Rayanna Station (earlier known as City Railway Station) on Monday morning. The e-bedrolls kits are of two types – one containing two cotton bed sheets and a pillow costing Rs. 140 and the other priced at Rs. 110 containing one blanket alone. Both are packed in a non-woven fabric bag. “The bed rolls are meant to help those travelling in sleeper class. Passengers can purchase them and take it home too, unlike those provided in air-conditioned compartments,” said Sanjiv Agarwal, SWR’s Divisional Railway Manager.
