To order food online for consumption while travelling, first, the passenger will have to go to ecatering.irctc.co.in and enter the PNR (passenger name record) number. After entering the PNR number, the passenger will have to choose his/her station from the list of railway stations, displayed in drop-down menu. Following this, the vendor menu will open with food prices. Now, the passenger can choose the vendor and the food item. After selecting the food item, the passenger will have to select the mode of payment. After choosing the mode of payment, the order will be confirmed.
Once the transaction is completed, the passenger and the service provider will receive an email and SMS, which will have all the details of the order. Also,
for verification, an OTP will be sent to the passenger, which will be used by the service provider on the mobile application at the time of food delivery. Another email and SMS will be sent, 2 hours before the scheduled delivery time at the station. Additionally, an email will be sent to the customer 24 hours before the scheduled delivery time at the station.
Interestingly, other than online ordering, passengers have two other options to place their order. First is by calling 1323 and the second is by sending an SMS to 139, typing MEAL . Moreover, the cancellation of confirmed order is also there for passengers, but it needs to be done at least 2 hours before the scheduled delivery of the meal. However, the refund will take at least 3 days from the date of order cancellation.

Dear Customer,
Kindly note that if a passenger gives the option at the time of booking the ticket itself, for boarding the train from a station other than journey originating station indicated on the ticket, the passenger will be given access to the reservation quota of the journey originating station indicated on the ticket and not of the changed boarding point as per new railway rule. This rule is applicable for the reservation made for 1st Oct ,2013 onwards The same availability status will reflect on website before making payment.
You are booking
the ticket from New Delhi (ndls) to Mumbai Central (BCT) with boarding point Kota Jn. The allotment has been considered as per the availability at New Delhi (ndls) and same has been booked as per the availability of New Delhi (ndls).

Blank Paper Ticket
Hello friends,
Today, I am sharing Indian Railway’s one of the best facility in term of train reservation booking. Indian Railways has a scheme named BPT – Blank Paper Ticket, Lets know what that is???

Blank Paper Ticket is a type of railway journey ticket. Blank Paper Ticket is a ticket issued by India Railways to break your journey at a station and then you can travel to your destination station in any train' s reserved compartment. In other words blank paper ticket is when a person wants to travel any destination and the direct train is not available then break journey is the last option for this type of journey. when the person approach to the ticket counter and demand the blank paper ticket, the ticket is provided to him with some concession in fare.
E.g. If you likely to travel Hyderabad-Deccan from Ahmedabad and you are not getting reservation in direct train or if you want to lay over in Mumbai for some hours for work, most probably you will book your ticket via Mumbai and search reservation in two different trains i) Ahmedabad-Mumbai ii) Mumbai- Hyderabad-Deccan. In this case you have to book two tickets but it will cost you more than direct train! As per the rule you can request a BPT on reservation counter and your ticket will be booked as Ahmedabad-Hyderabad-Deccan via Mumbai in two different trains. No extra charge will be made and you will save extra ticketing cost. Just you have to give two train names through which you want to travel. See the guidelines to fill up the reservation form below:
__________________________________________________ ______
Train Name: Gujarat Mail | Date: 23/12/2011 | Class: 2AC | Berth: 01
From Ahmedabad Jn. To Hyderabad-Deccan
Boarding at: Ahmedabad Jn. | Reservation up to: Dadar
__________________________________________________ ______________
Onward Journey
__________________________________________________ ______________
Train Name: Hyderabad Exp | Date: 24/12/2011 | Class: 2AC | Berth: 01
Boarding at: Dadar. | Reservation up to: Hyderabad-Deccan
__________________________________________________ ______________
You will have two tickets with two different PNR nos. Second ticket will cost you RS. 0 that is why it is called Blank Paper Ticket. This facilty is not available in Rajdhani Exp and Shatabdi Exp
