Indian Railways Have Not Started Giving Blanket Bedsheet On Train, No Concession To Senior Citizen And Others Categories Says Rail Minister Ashwini Vaishaw

Indian Railway: Indian Railways has started operating trains with old numbers, categories and rail fares as before. But the railway passengers are still deprived of the facilities available to the passengers in the train. Railway has not yet started giving blankets and bedsheets to the passengers traveling in AC class as before.

Question asked in Lok Sabha

In fact, in the Lok Sabha, MP Veena Devi had asked the question that after the introduction of the catering service, has the Railways already started giving blanket bedsheets to rail passengers traveling in AC class? So answering this, Railway Minister Ashnini Vaishnav has said no sir. That is, it is clear that the Railways has started its operation like Kovid East, but despite the cold, it has not started giving blanket bedsheets to the passengers inside the train. Due to which the passengers have to make all these arrangements themselves. They are bringing blanket bedsheets from home or have to pay separately to buy disposable bedrolls available in the train.

No discount ticket facility

The question was also asked to the Railway Minister whether the service of concessional tickets has been started for senior citizens and other categories of passengers traveling by rail and if not, when will the service of concessional tickets be started? Responding to this question, the Railway Minister said that due to the pandemic Kovid protocol, the concessional ticket facility of the Railways being given for all categories except four categories of Divyangjan and 11 categories of patients and students has been withdrawn.

Rail travel expensive for the elderly

One, most senior citizens do not have a solid source of income. From that, after the start of the corono epidemic (Covid 19 Pandemic) in March 2020, the government has suspended the concessions given to them for traveling by rail, which is still in reality. Due to this, the elderly have to loose their pockets more for traveling by rail.
