Travel Question

Can anyone confirm if catering charges are included in the fare for train# 02266 ?
Spoke to the IRCTC customer care helpline, got to know that for this special train, it is not included, but when asked for the fare break-up, he couldn't give me. So, the answer was not very convincing.
Would like to know from someone who may have first hand information.

My parents left for Sealdah yesterday (12th Oct) by AC II, food not included in this train. On top of that, the train was delayed by 2 hrs at Delhi itself.
Am a bit annoyed that the railways charging premium fare but failing to deliver when it comes to service.

If you dont mind the effort, please log a grievance on PGPortal against this. It was clearly specified by IR that catering charges are included in Premium trains so the same should have been provided in this train too.

probably nothing will happen in your case either but worth a shot anyway.

    -@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.
