IRCTC strengthens e-catering, tied up with TravelKhana.com

There are about 70 vendors till now who have tied up with IRCTC to supply food at stations and non-pantry trains across the country.

IRCTC is strongly participating with the food majors and e-catering service providers to speed up the food delivery system in train. In a bid to strengthen the same, the group has tied up with TravelKhana for providing food to the customers on train.

TravelKhana.Com services will soon be available on IRCTC's e-catering website as the necessary arrangements have been firmed up for this, said a senior IRCTC official involved with e-catering.

TravelKhana is a dedicated service provider for the passengers on the move.

There are about 70 vendors till now who have tied up with IRCTC to supply food at stations and non-pantry trains across the country.

TravelKhana CEO Pushpinder Singh said, "It is indeed an honour for us to be working with Railways through IRCTC as the partner of choice on their site. The arrangement will allow the passengers to be able to avail the service of their choice, rather than be limited and constrained by the licensed food suppliers."

Travelkhana will start its services at the New Delhi and Nizammudin railway stations on the E-catering system and has expressed its interest in starting its services on a total of 17 stations in the first phase.

Currently e-catering is available in about 1500 non-pantry trains and 45 stations. About 700 meals are being booked in a day through IRCTC e-catering site.

As per the procedure, a passenger orders through the website, mobile app or over the phone, and selects the food of his choice from those listed restaurants.

Under the arrangement, Travelkhana's listing will be available for travellers using the IRCTC's e-catering website.

Both IRCTC and TravelKhana are working on integrating the service platforms so that the revenue sharing arrangement works as a part of the recent policy announced by the Railways.
