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.
