Quality, not quantity, that’s going to be the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation’s (IRCTC) approach when it comes to railway meals.
It has decided to cut down on the quantity of food provided to passengers in Rajdhani and Shatabdi trains based on one of the recommendations of a committee set up to rationalise the menu that each one-person meal should be 700gm, instead of the 900gm currently provided by Indian Railways. According to an IRCTC officer, the plan is to improve quality by reducing the quantity. That may also help the corporation from the financial perspective, an IRCTC officer said on condition of anonymity.
‘The price for a meal is stagnant and has not been increased for years, although the price of items we serve has increased drastically. When we approached the Railway Board for a price increase, they allowed us to rationalise the menu instead of increasing the price. We are now taking a host of measure to improve quality of service and food item in trains,’ added this person.
