what is the reason
Actually, private companies provide bedroll facility in trains. Tenders are issued for this. During the lockdown, when the bedrolls in the trains were stopped, the tenders of private companies were also cancelled. So private companies stopped working. This facility remained closed for almost two years. Now when orders have been given by the Railways to give bedrolls again, then for this the tender process will have to be completed first. Only after this, railway passengers will be able to get facilities like sheets, blankets, pillows.
