Book Rail Ticket
All Indian Railway passengers are entitled to a list of facilities that make up for a comfortable and safe traveling experience. These provisions include proper bedding; catering and other hospitality features so that as a traveler you do not have to face any kind of inconvenience during the journey. The catering business that functions in the form of a pantry depending upon the distance the train covers and also the passenger load the train with holds is managed under the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC).
The IRCTC which is a subordinate body of the Indian Railway deals with operations related to Indian Railway catering, tourism and also online ticketing. The three primary establishments made by IRCTC for catering include passenger stalls that are stationary, mobile units present in the train itself and base kitchens that function inside the train. If catering services cannot be provided within the domain of the train then they are supplied from the stations that the train covers while undertaking the journey. Most trains and particularly the express rails are equipped with their very own pantry cars that supply break fast, lunch, and dinner catering apart from other tit bits like beverages and snacks for passengers on board. The onboard meals are fresh and are well prepared to suit your taste buds. The IRCTC has an immensely improved efficiency at work and hence their quality of catering services competes with international standards in terms of hygiene, packing, variety and also goodness of the serving.
The Indian railways believe in passenger satisfaction and hence the food supplies depend upon your eating habits as to whether the passenger is a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian. With this a customized meal is offered with the best variety at hand. Talking about the developments that are being initiated into the catering arena for passengers, the IRCTC corporation is working on establishing food centers at railway stations that will offer multi cuisines at subsidized prices and will also in a way promote rail tourism. These plazas will hence tender to a variety of cuisines including those ever favorite fast food brands. The Indian Railway is making huge leaps in allocating passenger amenities so that people can undertake relaxed journeys without any form of inconveniences.
