Gone are the days of boring railway food, now you can avail your favourite fast food while onboard. Passengers onboard Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains can pre-order their favourite fast food to their seat online, on phone call or by SMS, with mandatory meals now becoming optional from June 15.
A good news for fast-food lovers, Indian Railways has tied up with food chains such as Domino’s, KFC, McDonald’s and Sagar Ratna, among others.Food joints such as KFC and McDonald’s are yet to start delivery at stations in some station of the Northern Railways. While the service began from today, Ludhiana passengers travelling to Delhi by Shatabdi will only be able to avail food from Domino’s and other restaurants such as Gyan Vegetarian at Ludhiana and Babbi Fish and Chicken.
This initiative is taken to provide a delightful travel experience to the passengers, said divisional commercial manager Rajneesh Srivastava.
“While booking online, passengers should visit www.ecatering.irctc.co.in. They can then choose the station where they want the food delivered. After selecting the station, passengers will get options of food joints available for that particular station. They can view the menu of these food joints and order their food,” he said. He further added that you could pay online or even at the time of the delivery. The food aggregator will be responsible that the order was delivered to a passenger within time of the train’s halt at any particular station.
