New Delhi, Feb 2 (PTI) Faced with increasing complaints about unhygienic bedrolls being provided in trains, the Railways have decided to replace the present lot with polyester-made ones across all classes of travel.
This will help the railways attain the two-fold aim of ensuring delivery of clean bed rolls and maintaining their durability, a railway official said.
He said Railways have also decided to replace the bed rolls every one-and-half year instead of three years.
“Instructions have been issued to all railway zones to switch over to polyester materials,” the official said, adding, the replacement will be done in a phased manner.
Railways’ also plan to set up state-of-the-art laundry units to provide clean bed sheets, blankets, pillow covers and towels in trains, the official said.
The official said the plan to introduce biodegradable bedrolls has been dropped.
