As we all know, IRCTC is official food provider for Indian Railways. I just wanted to share you the Rate chart which is been uploaded on Indian Railways official website and would like to throw some light on how passengers had to suffer and had to pay 1.5X or 2X times of original price.
Below is the LINK for original IRCTC RATE CARD. ( click here )
For example, let us consider "standard casserole meal -Veg", as per IRCTC it should be Rs50 ONLY inside train and Rs 45 on the station
but you all know the reality. Usually, I found IRCTC caterers charge Rs 75-120 or even more depending upon route and IRCTC agent.
I request Railway ministers as well vigilance department to please look on to the matter and get these glitches resolved as we need to have a great experience with Indian Railways.

As i said nowhere Menu is followed.
The Catering system is huge scam in IR.
Over Pricing, Short Supply, Sub Standard Water Bottles nothing has changed.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
