Railway Ministry launches trial run of e-catering service
The Minister of Railways has launched a trial run of its e-catering service on six trains without pantries that run in the Delhi-Amritsar section. The trial run will be carried out by IRCTC which will serve food at five nominated stations. Depending on the success of the trial run, a decision will be made whether to launch them on a large scale or not.
Passenger with confirmed PNR number will be able to place an order through a phone call or SMS to the dedicated number. The food will be served from the IRCTC food plazas or catering units at select stations. Passengers will have to pay for the service only on delivery of the food.
