e-Catering Allowed Across 200 Railway Stations: Order Food & Get Delivered In Train!
Indians love their Railways! They have been part of memories for millions of Indians. They made strangers felt like family and bonded them like nothing else. One of the fond memories of these train journeys has been the food that you get to explore while crisscrossing the country. Keeping in mind this love for the food of fellow travelers, IRCTC has restarted E-Catering Services.
Delicious food delivered at the tip of a finger
IRCTC tweeted, “Train passengers can order food by visiting the website- http://ecatering.irctc.co.in or download IRCTC e-catering ‘Food On Track’ app. They can also call on the number 1323 for ordering delicious food from a vast menu.” This service can be availed by passengers at more than 200 restaurants in the country.
Once this food is ordered online, it will be delivered right at their respective seats in trains.
TO order the food, passengers will have to enter their travel details such as PNR number, Train name, seat/berth number either through the website or the app.
