New Delhi. The ‘ready food’ being provided in trains is not liked by all the passengers, they have also lodged a complaint regarding this and have suggested that they should again serve kitchen cooked food in trains as before, so that passengers during the journey Don’t have trouble eating. In this regard, IRCTC says that the food in the station trains is served according to the guide line of the Railway Board, food is being given as per the guide lines.
At present, more than 1600 trains are being operated across the country including Shatabdi, Rajdhani, Express, Mail. All these trains are being operated by giving the name of special train. This includes short and long distance trains. Providing food in all these station trains is the responsibility of Indian Railway’s PSU Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation. Due to Corona, according to the guide line of the Railway Board, ‘ready food’ is being given in all trains. Passengers have lodged a written complaint regarding this.
This is getting trouble
Those traveling by short distance trains are not facing much problem by eating ready-to-eat, but traveling in long distance trains i.e. 24 to 30 hours or more are facing problems. The reason is that passengers are not liking ‘ready food’ again and again for such a long distance and it is not possible to travel such a long distance by taking home cooked food. According to the information, due to non-availability of food in trains, outside vendors are selling food, due to which such complaints are coming.
Demand from irctc
Many passengers traveling in long distance trains have suggested IRCTC to provide food prepared from the kitchen as before, so that passengers do not face any problem in eating during the journey.
In this regard, IRCTC PRO Anand Kumar Jha says that IRCTC serves food according to the guidelines of the Railway Board. Railway Board has just given instructions to serve ready-to-eat food trains, so this food is being given.
