Passengers will no longer have to worry or carry food items during their journey as the Indian Railways has re-introduced e-catering services.

The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) said that the passengers can avail the e-catering service at 200 plus railway stations across the country.

The passengers can order food from several restaurants which will be delivered right at their respective seats in trains during journey.

In a tweet, IRCTC said, “Train passengers can order food by visiting the website- 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.”



Passengers can order food on train by simply entering their travel details such as PNR number, Train name, seat/berth number either through the website or the app and expect the delicious and quick food delivered on trains. Last month Indian Railways has announced Special Train For Pitru Paksha.

During payment, passengers can also select the Cash On Delivery (COD) option or make online payments as well, said the IRCTC.

In another development, the Ministry of Railways has approved the works for installation of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras in all train coaches including EMUs and passenger trains. Already CCTV cameras have been provided in 4141 coaches.

The Indian Railways has also approved the project of Video Surveillance System at all stations except halt stations. This includes the provision of Integrated Enquiry Response Management System (IERMS) at 983 stations under the Nirbhaya Fund to enhance safety of women passengers. So far, CCTV cameras have been installed at a 814 stations.
