IRCTC Rail Food News: Railway Board has decided to start food cooked in Rajdhani, Shatabdi, Duronto, Vande Mataram, Tejas and Gatimaan Express. After the decision, the passengers traveling every day will not have to worry about eating. The hassle of bringing food from home has also been relieved. The decision was taken to close this facility in view of the Corona crisis. From December 27, IRCTC is going to provide the facility of serving food prepared in about 50 trains.
Passengers who have booked tickets take food like this
In trains like Rajdhani and Shatabdi, the money for food is taken at the time of booking the ticket. At the same time, this facility was closed in the Corona crisis. Passengers who have booked tickets can take food during the journey in the train. For this, passengers will have to pay the food charges from the slip of access fare ticket to TTI. In that you will have to pay 50 rupees separately in addition to the cost of the food.
The special thing is that the Railways says that the passengers who want to eat during the journey can pay the fee online. For this, the information technology arm of the Railways (CRIS) is developing the software. At the same time, IRCTC is also making arrangements. Through this you can save an additional expenditure of Rs 50.
Order food by paying 50 rupees in train
Even if you have not paid the price of food at the time of booking the ticket, there is no need to take tension. If you want to take food from IRCTC after boarding the train, then you will have to pay an additional charge of Rs 50 along with the cost of the food. You can pay the food charges to the TTE on the slip of the Access Fare Ticket. Let us tell you that some time ago IRCTC was asked by the Railways to resume the facility of serving food to the passengers in the train. During the Corona period, the facility of serving food in the train was stopped.
