IRCTC: Now watch food preparation in trains before you are served!

Bhubaneswar/New Delhi: The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) is relying heavily on technology and leaving no stone unturned to ensure that train passengers are served the best possible foods.

Moving a step forward, on Wednesday, IRCTS made an announcement related to a ‘live streaming mechanism’ that will allow train passengers to view how the food served to them in trains is prepared and packaged at various base kitchens.

Railway Minister Piyush Goyal had suggested the move in a review meeting recently.

As per IRCTS’s statement, Railway Board Chairman Ashwani Lohani on Wednesday inaugurated the live streaming of food preparations at base kitchens to IRCTC’s website.

The IRCTC had earlier launched an artificial intelligence tool that uses CCTV footage to detect anomalies in hygiene level and communicates it to individuals concerned to initiate regulatory action, the statement said, adding it was developed in association with an artificial intelligence and vision computing company called Wobot
