Bedding will be provided in this train on payment of Rs 25. You can either pay during booking or can pay onspot. However in my opinion, payment during booking is better option.

UPI mode of payment available for unreserved tickets.
If you visit Karnataka, dont miss the Cauvery arts and crafts emporium.
