Travelling by train drives us back to our childhood days. Especially those who belong from the ’80s and ’90s, travelling from one part of India to another, for a long-awaited trip, bring on the same sweet smile on our face as it used to do back then.
Traveling with family, sitting beside the windows, eating food from large tiffin boxes- are all that we can remember. However, inconveniences for food were there and many had to settle for unhealthy and unhygienic station and pantry car foods.
So like all other conveniences, delivering the meal on the train has taken steps to make it suitable with the need of the travelers. E- Catering companies have popped in and train food parcels are made so easy that passengers can order their food right while they are traveling, and their favorite food would get served to them right to their seat/ berth.
How does it work?
Those golden childhood days of traveling with home cooked food have gone by. Today, we are so busy that we think twice to cook our dinners. So traveling by train with boxes full of homemade food is a distant dream. To make it easy though, usually, for people who are frequent travelers, the online meal booking platform for railway passengers has come into context.
Want your lunch on time?
Select the next station your train would take a stoppage. Surf through the e- catering service providers and available meal options. Input your seat/ berth number, make your order and wait for the train to reach the station. If passengers want to, they can track their order status on the same website. Yummy food order will be then delivered right to your seat without a minute’s late.
A plethora of meal options are available for the passengers to cater to their varied tastes. Travelers can enjoy local and regional cuisines when they are traveling or can stick to their staple and simple thali meals.
