According to the information received by NewsNCR, the Railway Minister has issued instructions to his officers in this regard that the facility of food for the passengers in the train should be implemented as soon as possible.
According to the information received from the Ministry of Railways, the facility of eating in the train will not be started in all the trains simultaneously. This facility will be started on select routes of the country. It will be started as a pilot project. After this, it will be started in all trains as before.
What is the current facility?
At the time of COVID, the facility of pantry car was removed in the railways. Instead, ready-to-eat food is given to the passengers during the journey. There are many complaints about ready-to-eat food. After these complaints, the Railway Minister has issued guidelines that the food system should be fixed soon.

Within the last three months, complaints are coming from every zone of the railway regarding the cost of food.
