Bedroll mandatory in Garib Rath while Booking ticket, option of taking bedroll by paying Rs 25 removed

Passengers traveling in Garib Rath Express will now have to take bedroll while booking ticket. They will not get the option to buy after paying Rs 25 according to the requirement. The new system will be effective from May 25. It will be implemented in all 26 pairs of Garib Rath Express trains across the country including Garib Rath from Dhanbad to Bhubaneswar. In this regard, Railway Board Executive Director Environment and Housekeeping Management Shivendra Mohan has issued orders for all the zones.

Railways had consulted the passengers regarding the implementation of the new system. During the consultation survey, complaints were also received about the bedroll given in the train. It has been implemented on this basis. For
Bhubaneswar from Dhanbad, the Garib Rath passengers has to pay Rs 790. After the new rules comes into effect from May 25, passengers will have to pay Rs 815.
Reservation form has also option whether  passengers need bed roll in the Garib Rath or not. Earlier passengers can choose the option of Yes and No. However, under the new rules, now this column of choosing option will be removed by Railway.

The Garib Rath (literally: "Poor people's chariot") is an air-conditioned train started by the Indian Railways in 2005 to provide subsidized price air-conditioned long-distance travel to passengers who could not afford standard fares of air-conditioned class in regular-fare trains. Saharsa - Amritsar Garib Rath Express is India's First Garib Rath. As the fares are less than two-thirds of the fares for air-conditioned classes in other trains, the distance between each seat or berth is less, the seats and berths are narrower and each coach has more seats and berths than in air-conditioned coaches in other trains.
