Indore: Passengers travelling in three long distance trains to Kerala, Karnataka and Assam will soon get an option of on-board food facility since the railways plans to introduce pantry cars in them.
A spokesman with Ratlam division of the western railways said that a proposal regarding introduction of pantry car facility in Indore-Yeshvantpur Weekly Express (19301), Indore-Kochuveli Weekly Express (19332) and Indore-Guwahati Weekly Express (19305) has been sent to the headquarters. A demand in this regard was raised by MLAs during a recent GM meeting, after which railway authorities decided to install the facility in these three trains.
hope to get permission for provision of pantry car facility in three long distance trains very soon since their passengers do not book food through e-catering services during breakfast, lunch and dinner time," he said.
He also said that on an average passengers have to travel for more than 30 hours in these trains and it becomes difficult for them when they do not get any option to buy safe and healthy food.
Officials also said that the railways, however, prefer to run a passenger coach in place of a pantry car. "The choice is between a pantry car and a sleeper coach, because a locomotive can haul only a 24-coach rake. The Railways always prefer a sleeper coach to a pantry car since it will only reduce the number of passengers," said an official.
He added that though it is sensible to run a sleeper-class coach that can accommodate 72 passengers, the convenience of hundreds of other passengers should not be compromised especially when a train runs for more than30 hours.
