Now with e-ticket, one can order fast food in train in India

Starting next week, train passengers can book their favourite meal while they book the tickets.

The Indian Railways has tied up with three fast food chains to cater meals in 50 trains, which does not have pantry cars.

Passengers will have the option to book their meals from any of the three fast food chains at the time of booking of their tickets. The meals can be served at any station of the passenger’s choice.

Among the trains which will have this facility are a number of Garib Rath, Janshatabdi, Janata and intercity categories.

“When the passengers book their tickets at the web portal of the IRCTC, they will also have the option to select their meals from the menu given by the food chains along with the choice of the stations where they want their meals to be served,” the official said.

In the event of the waiting list passengers whose tickets do not get confirmed later, the IRCTC would refund the amount paid for the meals along with the tickets.
