Sources from the railways added that it would be more cost-effective if the blankets are removed as it takes Rs 55 to clean the bedroll while passengers are charged Rs 22 for its usage. The temperature in the AC compartments until now was set at 19-degree Celsius but now Railways will maintain a temperature of 24 degrees.
