As announced in Railway Budget 2016-17, it has been decided that Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC) would begin to manage catering services in a phased manner.
IRCTC has also been mandated to establish 10 more mechanized base kitchens in compliance of pronouncement made in the Railway Budget.
It has also been decided that IRCTC would unbundle catering services by creating a distinction between food preparation and food distribution.
order to further improve the quality of the food served on Indian Railways, besides enhanced supervision and monitoring, newer options like e-catering, ready to eat food have also been introduced to provide variety of food to passengers.
This Press Release is based on the information given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on 2 December 2016 (Friday).
