Ever travelled in an eight-hour long journey and said to yourself, “This food sucks.”
Well, we all have been there. No offence to the Indian Railways but the regular dal chawal is not everyone’s cup of tea.
So, we have good news for you.
Say hello to “eCatering IRCTC.” Now, book your favourite meal from various popular food outlets such as McDonald’s, Domino’s and KFC for your next train journey.
For now, the service is open for Rajdhani and Shatabdi passengers only.
The regular food has been made optional because as they say, ‘love and food are meant for sharing, not for wasting.’
There are three ways to order your food:
- The passengers can order their food online on the website eCatering.irctc.co.in
- Call 1323
- SMS ‘MEAL’ followed by the PNR and seat no. to 139 and place the order.
The Rail Budget has stored in more reasons to be excited about your next journey.
Not only these joints but the Indian Railways has also tied up with various other food chains like Switz Foods, Only Alibaba, Haldiram, Bikanerwala, Nirulas, Sagar Ratna, Gyan Vegetarian, Babbi fish and chicken and others.
The services can only be accessed to those with confirmed tickets. A total of 408 stations provides the special facility with a various range of food items to pick from.
One can make the payment online or at the time of the delivery.
Who’s ready for their delicious train ride? 😉
