Illa sir. All passenger trains of IR, irrespective of how crowded or well patronized the trains are, are a loss making exercise to the IR. They're being run to add up on the 'social responsibility' that people expect IR to do.

IRCTC is an auxiliary service of Indian Railways created to book tickets online. It was not created with the intention of showing time tables of all train services.
But yes, the official site, indianrail.gov.in should have shown these trains. I agree on that part.

While finding a decent meal inside could be a difficult task, the nearly 1.5 km long street outside the station throws up quite a few options. Atleast two dozen small and medium sized eateries and scores of bakeries serving everything from north Indian to authentic Bengali cuisine, from street food to momos, you find them all.
Never bother scouting for food inside when there is so much outside!
