According to a report published on The Hindu, the Mysuru railway station now has transit maps and train schedules in Braille at various points across the station. The tactile map created by Anuprayaas, a Non-governmental Organization that aims create awareness regarding the visually impairment and blindness.

As reported by DNA, a private company has sponsored this project and they are taking inputs from a visually challenged association to implement it. They are looking at roping in NGOs and volunteers as well. 

Non-AC conventional coaches that have been manufactured after 2013 now come with Braille-embedded metal signage on berths, toilets, washrooms, door, etc. The Braille-embedded displays in the station will carry this integration further.
